Pattern Description:

My husband saw me knitting this cowl and said, "That reminds me of those licorice candies we had as kids." I agreed, so he looked up the name of those candies. They are "All sorts." Dumb name. So I thought they looked like black-eyed Peeps (those marshmallow things you get at Easter). Also lame. Then, I was knitting at our local coffee shop and 4-yr old Zia walked by and said, That looks like a pink Cheetah." Bingo! Thank you, Zia, for the perfect name!

The cowl looks doubleknit, but it is not. You can make it as long as you want. Join for a cowl. Twist and join for a moebius cowl, or just add fringe to the ends for a scarf. Very easy colorwork and, best of all, the inside won't show so NO FLOATS!


Not Critical

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • One size fits all


  • One 100 g skein each of any two contrasting or coordinating colors (Cover cowl uses Galloping Jester's Moonbeam and Goldilocks ). One 16" circular #3 needle, stitch markers, and tapestry needle
