Pattern Details

Part of the Very Chic series, this oversized cowl features elongated cables, made extra fluid by dropping select stitches. Slight shaping makes it easy to wear over or under a coat, and the generous depth keeps both the neck and shoulders warm. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Techniques & Skills Used: long-tail CO, knit/purl, cables, dropped stitches, decreasing, knitting in the round; this pattern includes both a chart and written instructions. GAUGE Gauge: 16 st and 20 rows/4" in stockinette stitch; one cable is approximately 2.5" wide. The sample used almost all of two skeins; while gauge is not critical for this project, a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished cowl, and different yardage requirements. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size: 15" tall and 18" circumference at top edge/24" circumference at bottom edge, after gentle blocking.

  • Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Worsted (100% Merino Wool; 210 yards/100g); 2 skeins, shown in Polar Morn.
  • Other Materials: US 9 (5.5mm) 24" circular needle; Stitch markers (4); Cable needle; Yarn needle; Crochet hook (any size) to help with raveling.
