In late October in Maine, “crispy” is a word that describes the chill in the air as well as the sound you make as you walk across the blanket of leaves left everywhere you go. And the color of this yarn just reminded me of this crispy fall season!

This cowl is knit in the round using bulky-weight yarn (I used the beautiful Malabrigo Mecha) and features an easy to knit stitch pattern that creates a very cool texture. Perfect mindless knitting!

The pattern also includes extensive tips on how to resize for different yarn-weights.

Pattern Details:

Approx 3.5 sts = 1” in Stockinette Stitch (although tips given for how to work for different yarn-weights)
