(6) Name: 'Knitting : Jinlys

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • provisional cast on, knit, purl, yo, k2tog, graft

Pattern Description:

Jinlys is a very simple, yet elegant cowl with a subtle and easy to work texture, that provides just the right amount of interest.

Starting with a provisional cast-on, it's knitted flat on the bias until the final length is reached. Then both ends are grafted together using the kitchener stitch.

Final measurements are approximately 8 x 50 [20 cm x 125 cm], but you can easily vary this by either knitting more rows, so that the cowl becomes longer, or adding pattern repeats to each row so that the cowl becomes wider.


8 sts x 12 rows = 2 x 2 [5 cm x 5 cm] in pattern, blocked

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 8 [20 cm] wide and 50 [125 cm] circumference


  • 5.0 mm (US 8) circular needles
