Pattern Description:

In this warm and cozy neck cowl, a lace collar and band
are worked around the neck, stitches are then picked up
and more lace is worked downward with increases towards shoulders. A worsted weight yarn is used with larger needles for a softer more open knitted piece. Hat matches the cowl in pattern and uses a smaller needle size for a more firm fit.


Cowl: 15 sts = 4 inches in stockinette st.
Hat: 20 sts = 4 inches in stockinette st.


  • Worsted weight with a gauge of 5sts/inch is suggested for both the cowl and hat. For the cowl, you will be using a needle that is 2-3 times bigger than for the hat to increase the gauge. For the hat, you want the needle size suggested for the yarn. (see gauges below) Sample shown uses North American Certified Sorted Alpaca (see resource at bottom) worsted weight, 94% Alpaca / 6% wool, 100gr skeins. 2 skeins will be enough for both hat and cowl. (hat requires less than 1 skein, cowl requires a little more than 1 skein)
  • Cowl: One 16" circular needle in US7 - 9 depending on gauge.
  • Hat: One 16" circular and 1 set of double pointed in US5 - 7 depending on gauge.

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle.
  • 1 large button each for hat and cowl (cowl button is hidden).
  • Stitch marker.

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

North American Certified Sorted Alpaca

I grew up surrounded by a family that appreciates art and crafts. I first learned to sew. Then embroider. Then, reluctantly, knitting.
