Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • short rows (explained and illustrated in full detail)

Pattern Description:

The OrganiX cowl is worked in the round with 2 color ridges and features an 'eye'-catching motif. The second color gives extra depth to the ridges and makes it reversible. Works very well with a multicolored or semi-solid colored yarn combined with a solid color.

The OrganiX cowl comes in 2 versions: a short version 56cm (22") (orange cowl pictured) and a long version 112cm (44") (red cowl pictured) with an average width of 25cm (10")
Shortrows are used for the eye-motif.

All techniques (short rows, jogless stripes, ...) used are explained in full detail in the pattern with photos and diagrams.

The pattern is written and charted.

This pattern is written for fingering weight, but it can easily be altered for another yarnweight (dk, worsted, ...)
