DESCRIPTION
The Purl Bee’s Stitch Block Cowl employs three fascinating stitch patterns for a knitting adventure! In the remarkably soft merinos of Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist and Madelinetosh’s Tosh Merino, the result is one beautiful and voluptuous cowl!

MATERIALS
Our Yarn for Stitch Block Cowl kit comes in three colorways and includes…

Color A: 3 skeins of Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist, 100% merino wool.
Color B: 1 skein of Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist, 100% merino wool.
Color C: 1 skein of Madelinetosh’s Tosh Merino, 100% superwash merino.

You will also need: A US #7, 24-inch circular needle. (You need a circular needle because one of the stitch patterns requires you to slide the stitches from one of the needle to the other.)

GAUGE
5 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch, using the Color A.
4 stitches = 1 inch in any of the three stitch patterns.

FINISHED SIZE
12 3/4 inches wide by 60 inches around

NOTE: To change the width of the finished cowl, cast on any odd number and follow the directions as written.

PATTERN NOTE
All three of these stitch patterns use the technique of “knitting into the row below.” Here’s how to do it… http://www.purlbee.com/the-purl-bee/2014/1/30/whits-knits...
