This close-fitting, twisted cowl may be knit in two evenings, thus the name “Two-Night Cowl”. The ribbed, twist-stitch faux cable stitch pattern creates a two-sided fabric that looks great on both sides.
You will need any bulky weight yarn (gauge of 3 stitches to the inch on size U.S. 10.5 needles) in two colors, a main color and then a contrasting accent color for the edges. Optionally, you might want to sew a nice big button on the cowl … I like the way it looks with a button detail.
I used 100 yards for the main color, and just a small amount (less than 10 yards) for the contrasting accent color.
This cowl is knit in the round and measures 18” in width before being twisted. I give instructions for sizes Adult Small, Medium, and Large. If you want to make your cowl even larger, increase the stitch count by multiples of 4 stitches. Both sides of the fabric are attractive, so extra twists in a larger cowl would look great.
