Weinstock, Ger. grapevine, whose name so chosen as the yarn color reflects the withering grapevines prevalent in both our old home of Naples, Italy and present home of Stuttgart, Germany. The woven texture, achieved by slipped stitches, further represents the twisting of grapevines.
This cowl pattern is ideal for highlighting hand-dyed, variegated and handspun yarns.
ERRATA: The tubular cast on instructions are incorrect. My deepest apologies. Please see the following instructions below:
With waste yarn and smaller needles cast-on 76 (152) sts in the Long-Tail CO. Distribute and join sts for working in the round.
Switch to your working yarn and work as:
Round 1: *K1, yo; rep from *
Round 2: P1, *k1, slip 1 purl-wise with yarn in front; rep from *.
Round 3: *P1, sl1 pwise with yarn in back; rep from *.
Repeat Rounds 2 and 3 one more time.
Switch to the indicated size needles and work 11 ribbing until desired depth.
Finally, carefully remove waste yarn.
