There are two cowl designs (two separate files) included in this purchase: Mist Infinity and a bonus pattern Twilight Mist Cowl (shown in the last three photos.

Mist Infinity design features reversible eyelet and lace rib stitch patterns. Made in looser gauge and with generous width and length, this accessory can add a statement to your wardrobe.

This cowl is knit sideways making the pattern easily customisable. The yardage and size is given for the long loop to wear it draped around the shoulders in a double wrap style, as shown in the sample. This design consists of two main stitch patterns that can be arranged differently, if desired, and the loop can be made shorter to wear it pulled over the shoulders, like a capelet.

The ends of a knitted piece are sewn together along the cast-on and bind-off edges to form a loop. For a seamless look, the ends can be joined with the Kitchener Stitch instead. To add more interest to this accessory, I used the yarn in two contrast colours.

Bonus pattern

Twilight Mist Cowl design features reversible eyelet and lace stitch patterns that look
good on either side, right or wrong. The main part of the cowl is worked flat, sideways.
The length of the knitted piece is a circumference of the cowl.

The knitted piece is sewn along the cast-on and bind-off edges to form a loop. For a
comfortable fit the cowl is shaped by adding a knitted-on band from picked up stitches
along one edge of the cowl making it slightly narrower than the bottom opening.

The pattern is easily customisable. To make it deeper simply cast-on more stitches,
and to make it wider in circumference, if you would prefer it to fit around the shoulders,
work additional pattern repeats.

The sample is knit in two alternating colours. It uses only 50 grams of fingering weight
yarn in total to make an accessory like this little cowl.
