Note I thought I might mention that while I initially knitted this cowl in wool, I’ve knitted it three times in cotton since (using Knit picks Comfy Fingering) and I think I like it even better. The way the cotton drapes and folds is really nice. You can see pictures here and here.
IMPORTANT UPDATE. I have just uploaded an updated version of the pattern that corrects a large mistake. Where the pattern previously read, “repeat rows 1-18 26 times,” it now says, “repeat rows 1-18 thirteen times.” I apologize for any problems this has caused.
The Toast Wrap was inspired by the fairisle twisted wrap featured in the Toast UK Fall 2011 catalogue. My version does not include the twist. However, it should be fairly easy to incorporate the twist into this pattern if you want.
This is the first pattern I have ever written, so it will undoubtedly include mistakes. If you notice any, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make the appropriate corrections.
