The Mini Stripe Cowl is a simple, striped cowl created with alternating sections of a background and colorful stripes, with just a touch of texture. It is intended to use with minis, but could also be made with scrap yarn. Alternative instructions for using scraps or smaller minis are given at the end of the pattern.

Materials needed include:

  • Approximately 420 yards of fingering weight sock yarn in multiple colors (approx. 200 yards MC and 220 yards of various contrasting colors). Model used four 20 gram (80-90 yard) minis from the Camel City Dyeworks “Hoopla” mini set.
  • Size US 4 (3.5mm) 16” circular needles.
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
  • One stitch marker.

Gauge is approximately 7 stitches and 10 rows per inch on US 4 (3.5mm) needles. However, I am a tight knitter. If you are a loose knitter, you may want to go down a needle size. I recommend knitting a swatch to ensure you like the fabric your needles create. While gauge is not crucial, it could make a big difference in how the cowl lays on your neck.

ERRATA: CC1 Stripe section incorrectly reads “Row 1-12:” it should read “Row 1-15:”.
