Gritstone is a quick knit, light but warm and perfect for cooler weather in Spring and Autumn, or whenever else you feel like wearing it. The garter and lace remind me of the patterns visible in the rock of the gritstone edges near my home.

This comfy, cosy cowl can be worked in any yarn with which you can achieve gauge (the sample used two skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in “woodsmoke”). Please be aware that row gauge is important, as this affects the circumference of the top of the cowl. The pattern is written with one size, to fit most adults. If in doubt about the size it is suggested that you measure the cowl before joining in the round.

The cowl is worked from the top down. It is worked flat to start then joined to work in the round. It can be made using any worsted weight yarn. It is important not to work the i-cord borders too tightly, as this can result in the cowl pulling in at the top and bottom.

This pattern uses charts for the lace portions. The rest of the instructions are written.
