Clean and uncomplicated, this easy cowl combines linen stitch with garter. If you’ve never done linen stitch before, you’ll love it! It’s almost exactly like knit 1, purl 1—but without actually having to form the purl stitch.

The garter adds interest and gives a bit of a break.

This cowl also provides a beautiful way to use a few skeins of special yarn. Mixing a variegated with a tonal would work well. Anything soft and warm will do the trick!

The pattern provides directions for yarn that knits at 5, 4, and 3.5 stitches per inch.
