ORLA cowl is the matching accessory to Orla sweater. It features the same fascinating texture surrounded by delicious garter stitch.
Loose yourself in this perfectly small project and create your own feel good accessory. It’s an ideal project to use up some sweet left over yarn. The cowl is worked seamlessly in the round one half at a time. Starting with a provisional cast on allows for identical edges at the top and the bottom as well as it makes seaming unnecessary.
The design uses DK weight yarn to keep you warm and cozy. Alternatively you can use light fingering weight yarn held double (which equals DK weight) and create your very own look.
