Diamonds in the Waves Cowl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increasing and decreasing, yarn over, knitting through back loop,

Pattern Description:

This delightfully cozy cowl is knitted with sport weight yarn, from the bottom up. This is a lovely, easy to knit neck warmer that is loose fitting, yet very warm to wear. You use larger circular needles for the beginning, then, change to smaller needles, while actually knitting side to side instead of in the round. This gives you a fuller shaped cowl that settles warmly around your neck, yet isn't too bulky at the top, near your face. The cowl begins with the ever-lovely feather and fan pattern stitch, the border is continued with the eyelet pattern rows. Next, the center is knitted with a mini-diamond pattern that could easily be lengthened or shortened as desired. You then continue with another section of eyelet row patterning, and you finish it off with more of the feather and fan stitch pattern, and then seamed up the back. There are written directions as well as a chart for the diamond stitch.
