Whitethorn combines the style of a triangular shawl with the ease of a pull-on cowl. With no fussy ends to manage, this is the perfect “throw on and go” accessory and is great for gift knitting as well! It uses a single skein of DK weight yarn and the simple patterning means it will look just as good in solid, tonal or speckled yarns. Beginning at the center front with a garter tab cast on, and working down and out. This cowl is first knit flat, then joined in the round, for a quick, fun, seamless knit.

Yarn and Yardage
Cedar House Yarns 100 g (3.5 oz) / 231 yards (211 meters); 100% Superwash Merino Wool; DK Weight in Fog; 1 skein, 100 g, 231 yds, 211 m.

Cowl is 20” / 51 cm around (A), 7” / 18 cm long at the back (B) and 16.5” / 42 cm long at the front (C), not including the tassel.

20 sts and 31 rows/rnds = 4” / 10 cm in stockinette stitch, blocked. Make sure your gauge is the same while working flat and working in the round, as this pattern does both. Feel free to change needle sizes when switching from one to the other to keep a consistent gauge.
