This cosy cowl is designed to display the bounce & fullness of Dublin Dye Company’s Merino DK. It is shaped with short rows & can be worn pulled down over the shoulders, or gathered around the neck.

The body of the cowl is begun with a provisional cast on; it is knit back & forth in a combination of garter stitch & slipped stitch. The ends are grafted, and stitches are picked up around the neck for a threaded stitch edging, which is then finished with an i-cord bind off.

The pattern is written in one size; garter stitch is very accommodating!
