Österby Cowl is also sold as a part of the YarnestyCowl.lection, which can be purchased here

The theme of the ’Yarnesty Cowl.lection’ is places in Sweden. Places I have been to and maybe aren’t very well known. Step by step, the collection will grow and by March, it will contain 6 different cowls.
Of course, I want to start with the place where I grew up, Österby.

Always knit a swatch to make sure your gauge is correct. Otherwise, your cowl will have different measurements than defined in this design.

Notions & needles
8 stitch markers

1 stitch marker unique for BOR

Tapestry needle

Circular needles in size to obtain gauge, e.g. with a length of 40-60 cm / 16-24” or 100 cm / 40”
When knitting the sample, gauge was obtained on 4.5 mm / US7 needles
Note that I am a tight knitter so you may need to go down a needle size to obtain gauge.
