Knitting Pattern #6: Art Yarn Cowl

Now that the fiber festival is over, I can finally get down to business and publish some knitting patterns!

This one is one of my favorites.  I've been spinning a lot of thick & thin spiral plied art yarns, but I really didn't know what to do with them.  

A very colorful thick & thin spiral plied yarn.

I decided to cast on a simple stockinette cowl, and I absolutely love how it turned out!  The thick & thin yarn gives even a stockinette stitch a great texture.  The cowl is long enough to wrap around your neck twice, but the length can be easily modified.

Anyway, here is the pattern.  It needs a name though...I'd love some suggestions!

Art Yarn Cowl

Bulky thick & thin yarn: 80-90 yards
#11 needles

Gauge isn’t important

Cast on 13 stitches

Knit 1 row, purl 1 row (work in stockinette) for 40” (or as long as desired)

Seam working end to cast on edge.

Enjoy!  I'll get the pattern on Etsy soon, and update the name.
