Basic Skills Necessary:

  • some experience with two-color knitting

Pattern Description:

Inspired by Bavarian autumn festivals like the Oktoberfest this cowl came into existence. It has pretzels all around and a nice little blue and white Bavarian peerie pattern. The striped ribbing fits perfectly around it. As there are at most two colors in one round this project is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners. Note: I used the two-colored cast-on (you need to use a smaller needle size there) and included a little picture tutorial in the pattern. You can adjust the pattern in length by repeating additional chart repeats. So you can make your own super Pretzel loop! I hope you have as much fun knitting and wearing it as I have! There is also a pretzel beanie available. And there is also a little surprise included in the pattern ;-)
