Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round with simple knit and purl stitches

Pattern Description:

Tressie is a cowl knitted in the round that is just perfect for keeping your neck cozy. Unlike a scarf, Tressie will always remain in place and is ever so stylish. The cowl features a spiral pattern in the center section with seed stitch on the top and bottom. It is 100% reversible, so you can wear Tressie straight up or turned down. Style the cowl with your coat or as an accessory with your favorite sweater.

Use either a dk or light worsted:
Blue sample knit out of Madelinetosh Tosh DK in color Bloomsbury (225 yards/206 meters; 100% superwash merino wool)

Brown and cream samples knit out of Knit Picks Swish Tonal Worsted in colors Kindling and Pearlescent (220 yards/201 meters; 100% superwash merino wool)
