Cowls are just the best thing to wear in winter when out and about. They keep you neck warm and never slip off, whatever you are doing. I named this one Fields of Green because it reminds me of ploughed and seeded fields which are just turning green as the seeds sprout.
This is a straightforward make and suitable for someone new to knitting provided they can join and work in the round.
The sample is made using The Natural Dye Studio's Special merino Silk yarn which is 50% pure merino and 50% silk, giving it warmth, structure and drape. The finished size is 60cm (approx. 24") around by 28cm (approx. 11") deep when blocked.
You can adapt the pattern to suit your required size or even change the yarn weight, some ideas for this are given at the end of the pattern.

Like many I took a couple of decades off my knitting and crochet whilst my working life took over, but now I am catching up. I always have a hook or pair of needles close by; my fingers do not like to rest. After reacquainting myself with my old hobbies, I progresed to creating my own designs. It seemed a natural progression for me, as did running crochet workshops in the NW of England.
Those who have tried my designs will know that I love creating simple designs that look very effective, after all life doesn't need to be complicated! And I understand that many people like a bit of television or music knitting/crochet, so the easier they are the better it is to enjoy the world around you whilst enjoying your craft.
