The majestic Austrian Alps and baroque vistas of Salzburg are as essential to The Sound of Music as the actors. Alpen brings to life the mountain meadows and hills in a warm, squooshy cowl with two size options: single or double loop. Carefully placed increases and decreases combined with stripes create a modern alpine range, and a leafy lace pattern echoes the meadows.

Skill level: Advanced beginner and up

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Increases and decreases

Finished size: The pattern includes two sizes: single loop and double loop.

Single loop: approximately 46 inches (117 cm) in circumference and 7 1/2 to 8 inches (19 to 23 cm) tall

Double loop: 69 inches (175 cm) in circumference and
7 1/2 to 8 inches (19 to 23 cm) tall

Double loop requires approximately 170 yards of the main color and 70 yards of a coordinating color. Sample knit with “Blue Satin Sashes” as main color and “Whiskers on Kittens” as coordinating color.
