Trixie Cowl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, increase, decrease, attached i-cord, provisional cast on, kitchener stitch

Pattern Description:

The Trixie Cowl has a few tricks up her sleeve...Well not really, but by combining different textures and even different yarns, it is like you are wearing two different cowls. The cowl is loosely knit on the bias and has sturdy I-cord edges, so it will naturally fold in half, neatly aligning each of the I-cord edges. Have fun with this one. Make one in a single bold yarn or mix it up a bit by combining two different colors or a variegated yarn.

Don't let the provisional cast on or Kitchener stitch scare you. You can easily skip these by casting on and binding off very loosely, then seaming together. Your seam will be hidden in the natural fold of the cowl.
