This quick cowl is knit primarily in the round with short-row shaping. A simple wrap-and-turn short row works well in garter stitch, and there’s no need to pick up the wraps. The pattern is written for a gradient set of five, but can easily be knit in two colors or as many as you’d like! Each section takes a very small amount of yarn, making this cowl a great way to use up your fingering-weight leftovers.

Skills needed:
• Long-tail cast-on
• Short rows (detailed instructions provided)
• Increasing

This is not a difficult knit, but you will need to take care to keep your place in the instructions!

Approximate measurements:
• Height in back - 4”
• Depth in front - 10”
• Circumference at top - 24.4”
• Circumference at bottom - 32”

Yardage details:
The lower end of the total yardage estimate is what was actually used for the samples. I normally add 10% to allow for differences in yardage consumption, which is reflected in the upper end of the range.

The gray sample shown used the following yardage (lightest to darkest):
• C1 – 40
• C2 – 30
• C3 – 35
• C4 – 45
• C5 – 75

Samples knit in Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply Toes gradient sets in Pegasus (gray) and Cygnus (orange).
