Pattern Description:

This cowl was designed to make use of one of my first homespun yarn. I had roughly 180 metres of Bluefaced Leicester. Which is not a lot. So I was thinking of a cowl. To get the ultimate length out of it, I decided to work a slim scarf in a very lacey lace pattern. I got my inspiration from the many crocheted scarfs out there. I liked the way they look but wanted a knitted scarf. The stitch pattern I finally decided to use is very simple. Its the Knot-Stitch Mesh which I discovered in A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker. You just knit the pattern straight up and then sew the edges together. Thats all. A very quickly knit project.

Another bonus is: To make this Blueprint - as I named the pattern - you can use any yarn you like from lace weight to chunky weight yarn. Only half a skein (50 g - approximately 230 yd) of sock weight yarn and one skein (25 g - 230 yd) of lace weight yarn are enough to knit a cowl of similar dimensions! I am not even giving a gauge, because, frankly, it doesnt matter at all for this project. So, no swatching needs to be done!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Width: 9/23 cm
  • Length before sewing ends together: 45.5/115 cm

Suggested yarn:

230 yards of Chunky weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

hand-dyed

I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then ...
