This cowl was designed after deciding I wanted a lovely thick material for the winter months that didn’t have a wrong side. Sometimes when you are wearing a cowl it flips over and you don’t see the pattern anymore. That won’t happen with this one. It is also a great project for practising your fair isle skills.

It is knitted in one piece, in the round. You start with a provisional cast on and finish by grafting the stitches together. This means there is no seam visible when you have finished.

There is a repeated section in the middle, so you can make the cowl longer or shorter depending upon your personal preference.

It uses DK wool in three colours. The main, dark brown colour, a lighter brown and a contrasting blue.
