Do you feel intimidated sometimes and think: “That’s too hard for me, I couldn’t possibly be able to achieve that”?

Well, “Be Confident” because many things are a lot easier when you actually try them as they had seemed on first glance.

The stitch pattern in this generously proportioned cowl, which I immediately fell in love with when I found it online, looks like a complicated shell stitch, but is actually quite easy to make. Just try it!

“Be Confident” was designed in collaboration with Malabrigo Yarns.


  • Malabrigo Rios (100% Merino): 100g/ 210 yards [192 meters] – 3 skeins or approximately 550 (600) yards [505 (550) meters] of worsted weight yarn that knits up to gauge. The sample is made in “Plomo” colorway.
  • US 6 – 4 mm & US 7 – 4.5 mm 24” [60 cm] circular needles
  • one stitch marker
  • tapestry needle

Cowl (double twisted cowl)
Finished measurements: circumference: 37.75 (51.75)“ [96 (123) cm]; height: 14 (14)” [35.5 (35.5) cm].

1 repeat of Texture Pattern (14 sts and 20 rows) worked with larger needles = approx. 3.5” (9 cm) by 3.25” (8.5 cm) measured after blocking.
Gauge is not essential; however, with a different gauge, actual finished measurements and total yardage will change.
