The Porthole Windows cowl is named after the little round eyelet holes framed by squares in the main body of the work. It is worked flat from side to side, starting from a crochet chain provisional cast-on. When the required length is reached, the provisional cast-on is then unpicked and the two “live” ends are closed with Kitchener stitch to form a short loop. The cowl measures 9 ½” (24cm) high and 24” (61cm) around when made to pattern tension of 20 sts and 30 rows to 4” (10cm) over porthole windows pattern.

The pattern gives both charted and written instructions. It is not necessary to use charts to work this pattern.

You will need:
170 yards (155m) of DK weight yarn
4mm (US6) knitting needles (or size required to achieve pattern tension)
(If working flat on circular needles, a second 4mm circular needle may be helpful for picking up the provisional cast-on sts for grafting at the end)
4mm crochet hook
Waste yarn (for provisional crochet chain cast-on)
Darning needle

You need to be able to: work a crochet-chain provisional cast-on, work simple increases and decreases, graft using Kitchener stitch.
