Jinlys is a very simple, yet elegant cowl with a subtle and easy to work texture, that provides just the right amount of interest. Starting with a provisional cast-on, it's knitted flat on the bias until the final length is reached. Then both ends are grafted together using the kitchener stitch. Final measurements are approximately 8 x 50 [20 cm x 125 cm], but you can easily vary this by either knitting more rows, so that the cowl becomes longer, or adding pattern repeats to each row so that the cowl becomes wider. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY provisional cast on, knit, purl, yo, k2tog, graft GAUGE 8 sts x 12 rows = 2 x 2 [5 cm x 5 cm] in pattern, blocked SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 8 [20 cm] wide and 50 [125 cm] circumference SUGGESTED YARN 308 meters of Bulky weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Cascade Superwash 128 COLORWAY Feather Grey

Hey there, I'm Melanie and in my real life I'm an IT specialist, mother of three and a semi-successful housewife. In my secret second life I design knitwear. I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I spend my time combining colors, shapes and textures into freewheeling designs that are uniquely my own. I've been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small, and I've also self-published my own patterns and e-books. I love collaborating with creative types from all over the world.
