The Fishin Cowl gets its namesake from the deliciously cushy stitch known as the Fisherman’s Rib. This is not your standard rib but a variation that incorporates more elasticity, drape and extra warmth that is perfect for our Canadian winters. The two colour striping is particularly striking in this design. We used Madelinetosh Vintage for this project, which is a hand dyed worsted weight yarn. The subtlety in the colour variation adds extra dimension to the fabric. This lovely merino wool is truly comfortable to wear on the neck. Each side of the cowl has a slightly different look, but both are equally appealing. This pattern contains instructions for the single wrap cowl and the double wrap cowl pictured. The single wrap took 2 skeins -one of each colour and the double wrap took 4 skeins - 2 of each colour.
This is an excellent project for anyone tired of plain knit and purl and wants to experiment with something different.

Level: Knitters should know how to knit and purl in rounds on a circular needle to make the Fishin Cowl.
