Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • purling
  • simple stranded colorwork

Pattern Description:

Atwater Cowl is a simple colorwork cowl, knit in the round, using two colors. It is named for the Milwaukee beach where my husband proposed, and I happily accepted.

Luxuriously soft, and a joy to knit when worked up in the lovely Plucky, resulting in a lofty piece with beautiful drape.
Equally as lovely, but possibly designed for more blustery days when worked in the single ply merino from Malabrigo.

A great beginner colorwork pattern, which includes both written and charted instructions for the stitch pattern.

Color A: 175-200 yards 160-183 m
Color B: 95-110 yards 87-101 m


10 stitches and 14 rows = 2 inches in stockinette


  • US 8 - 5.0 mm 24" circular needles
  • worsted/Aran weight yarn
  • one stitch marker
  • tapestry needle

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Malabrigo Worsted (100% Merino) or Plucky Knitter primo worsted
