A cosy cowl, knit in two colours of DK weight yarn, using up yarn from stash. Instructions are given for one size but the pattern is easily adaptable to suit your requirements or the amount of yarn you have available.

Linen stitch gives a lovely texture, and two colour linen stitch looks amazing, especially in the silky yarn given in the pattern (sadly now discontinued). Any DK weight yarn can be used and you can knit until you have used up all the yarn available, or until you have a long enough cowl.

Please Note: This pattern has not been tech edited nor test knit (other than by myself), and so if you find any errors in the pattern, please do contact me at so that I can correct them.
