Fall Twist Cowl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • cable
  • slide
  • working with multiple colors
  • box pleat
  • braiding

Pattern Description:

The "Fall Twist Cowl" braids and cables Estelle's Cloud Cotton into a cozy cowl perfect for the changing seasons. The warmth of the organic cotton snuggles you close as the colors reflect the changes occurring in nature. Accented with a recycled clay button, this cowl will keep you in comfort and style as you explore the beauty of Fall.

For the complete story behind "Fall Twist Cowl," please check out my blog post.

I set this pattern at an intermediate level. It requires 3 skeins of Estelle's Cloud Cotton - orange, brown, and red. However, there is enough left over to knit a second cowl if you change which color is main. The pattern includes box pleats, cables, and braids. Since each section is worked individually, beginner + knitters looking for a challenge should be able to complete this project. The pattern includes are written directions, a chart, and a braiding schematic. Of course, I'm available by e-mail for any questions that might arise.

Today is a great day to knit the "Fall Twist Cowl"!
