I designed this cowl on a train journey to London to celebrate my daughter’s 16th birthday as well as finishing her exams and school. The slipped stitches section is representative of the journey there and back. The stripe section is for all the sightseeing and the show we went to see. It went far too quickly and all too soon we were on our way home again. The plain sections are the lovely chilled out times we spent together in the hotel or in the restaurant.

The cowl is knitted in the round in one piece. It starts with a provisional cast on and then the ends are seamed together to finish.

It was knitted in Sylvan Tiger Yarns laceweight which is a BFL and silk mix. It comes in small, medium and large width. The length can be adjusted to be longer or shorter as well.

Includes a schematic and link to a video tutorial of how to kitchener in the round.

Thank you to my tech editor Linda at Tabitha Thomas Studios and my wonderful test knitters.
