This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

I designed this pattern to show off one of my favourite stitches, a lace stitch that creates beautiful elegant waves.

A matching hat is available in my Ravelry store.

I am not a pattern designer. I simply enjoy playing around with stitches and seeing what happens. If you spot a mistake or have a question please send me a message.

Some things you might like to know before downloading the pattern.

Finished Size.
25cm high by 51cm circumference.

Skill Level.
Advanced beginner.

Skills Required.
Cast on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, knitting two stitches together, yarn over, knitting in the round and cast off.

Materials Required.
150m aran weight yarn to knit the cowl pattern as written.
4.5mm 50cm circular needles, or size needed to obtain tension.
Stitcher marker (recommended but optional)
Darning needle to sew in ends.

Tension/Gauge.
Ball band tension 16 stitches x 23 rows on 5mm needles.

Notes
This cowl is knit in the round from the bottom up.
I used the cable cast and standard cast off but any cast on/off with a little stretch will work.
The pattern is written in a line by line format only, no charts.
The lace pattern repeat is 6 stitches and 10 rows.
Two downloads are available one with pictures and one without.
With a tension square and a bit of maths this pattern is easily adapted to other yarn weights.

Now for the the boring bit.
With respect please do not take credit for the pattern, claim the pattern as your own or sell the pattern. Selling completed cowls is fine but not the pattern or any part of the pattern. If you sell the cowls online please link back to me for pattern credit.
By using this pattern you are agreeing to my terms.
Thank-you and Happy Knitting.
