Standing Stones Cowl
I designed the “Standing Stones Cowl” to be a garment that could be worn as an all day accessory. It is designed to drape over your shoulders or worn once around your neck. I find it to be the perfect thing to wear while I’m having my morning coffee, working at my computer or sitting on the couch knitting. It also looks wonderful draped and worn in the same fashion as an infinity scarf.
The construction is quite simple. To make this pattern you will need to know how to: knit, purl, yarn over, knit stitches together, knit in the round and increase. There is a chart, but the chart is also written out. So you do not need to know how to read a chart for this pattern.
