Green Leaves Cowl is a quick but fun knit. The scarf is knit with 1 ball of worsted weight yarn and allows you the option of knitting the scarf long or short just by adding additional yarn. The fun leaves knit up quickly and allow just the right amount of interest to keep you knitting.
The dropped stitch cable also adds a unique touch to the cowl.
This pattern may be knit in any yarn, just change the needles to create the perfect scarf for you.
This scarf is knit in 1 section and is seamed at the cast on/ bound off edges to create a cowl.
Please note the lace look is created with the drop stitch when the scarf is bound off. It will not appear as in the picture until the drop stitch is performed.
