Knitting this easy cowl is a great way to use up extra yarn. Use any bulky or chunky yarn, and holding worsted weight doubled will work too.
A color chart is provided to achieve the irregular stripes in the sample, but go ahead and make up your own!
11 sts and 19 rows = 4" square in Stockinette stitch.
It isn't necessary to achieve perfect perfect gauge for this cowl, just make sure you love the feel of the fabric you're knitting.
I'm a knitting designer/tech editor, eco-conscious, locally-minded, and responsible shopper. I hope someday to have the time to dabble in sewing and spinning.
