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.
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
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.
