Winter Linen Cowl
This is a truly a simple beauty of a cowl. Linen stitch in three colors interspersed with main color garter stitch bands, the knitter’s color choices will determine its final “feel.” Worked in Sport or Fingering Weight in 2 sizes on larger needles, makes this cowl drape nicely as it keeps the normally dense Linen Stitch soft and fluid. Shown in DarkPlum, Walnut Heather and Cotton Candy in Necklet size, can be made in a longer length (Large) as well. Cascade 220 Sport shown but any fingering or sport can be used.
