Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl stitches
  • Increase and decrease stitches - KFB, yo, k2tog, ssk, sl1 k2tog psso, sl2 k1 p2sso
  • Knit in the round
  • Shadow wrap short rows

Pattern Description:

Hold onto the sweetness of summer through the colder months with the Loganberry Cowl. Knit in a sumptuous worsted weight yarn, the Loganberry Cowl features a delicate miniature leaf pattern bordered in a delightfully bumpy seed stitch reminiscent of the berries for which it is named. Kerchief shaping yields added warmth at the neckline.

This downloadable, PDF pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit to reduce the potential for error. The pattern is charted, but also includes complete written line by line instructions so the ability to read a chart is not necessary to work this pattern.

The Loganberry Cowl is worked from the bottom up using a combination of knitting in the round and short rows. NOTE: Pattern utilizes the shadow wrap method of working short rows. The standard wrap and turn method of working short rows is not well suited to this pattern.

If you haven't worked shadow wraps before, Alice Yu's Socktopus Unplugged blog has a wonderful photo tutorial on how to work this awesome short row method. Thanks, Alice, for providing such a great resource! The Loganberry Cowl pattern PDF includes written instructions on how to work the shadow wraps as well.

The Loganberry Cowl is quick to knit and makes a beautiful gift, but just be sure to make one for yourself too!
