I wanted to design something simple, easy to make, that looks like much more. Here the linen stitch is used in 3 colors (only one color per round) and looks so sophisticated. SInce linen stitch can work up more slowly, garter stitch bands help move it along faster and gives a pretty contrast. Two sizes, a "necklet" (shown) and a longer cowl (large) give the knitter choices. A quick gift to knit up for someone (or for you...) it uses sport or fingering weight yarn on larger than normal needles to keep it thin and gives lovely drape to the fabric. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round GAUGE 21 sts = 4 inches on larger needles SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 21" or 46" circumference PREFERRED BRAND/YARN cascade 220 sport COLORWAY plum, brown & pink

Recommended with this pattern

  • 160 or 500 yds sport or fingering weight yarn
  • US size 5 & 6 circular needles 24 " or longer
