I came up with this pattern in the middle of the night, hence the name. :) It is a great pattern for anyone who gets bored with doing the same stitch or pattern repeats over and over. An easy yet varied pattern, great for keeping interest. The cowl is knit up using 2 strands of worsted weight yarns held together on size 11 needles and therefore knits up pretty quick.

I have knit this one twice and both times used two different colored yarns held together. The results were great :). My lovely friend Ellen also knit it using two different colors held together and hers turned out beautiful as well. You don’t have to use two colors if you don’t want to though, you can just hold two strands of the same color together.

The way the pattern is written you get a loose fitting cowl, as pictured. If you would like it to be tighter just subtract 17 stitches from the cast on number. If you would like it to be looser so that you can twist it around twice, just add 17 stitches to the cast on. The pattern is knit on a 17 stitch repeat so when adjusting size, just keep that in mind. :)

Happy knitting! :)
