Pattern Details

Named after the snowy peak and surrounding forests of Wy'East (more commonly known as Mt. Hood), the Wy'East cowl is a lightweight cowl with two complementing snowflake-inspired lace patterns alternated by rows of simple stockinette. The cowl is knit flat, back and forth and then quickly seamed up the back when finished. Or alternatively, you can leave it un-seamed and wear it as a scarf. Knit in a fingering weight wool, Wy'East is very light yet warm, perfect for layering from fall through spring. Wy'East uses an entire skein of Knit Pick's Palette fingering weight yarn (231 yrds) for the entire pattern written as is. If you want to make this cowl (or scarf) longer, you will need more yardage. Pattern includes helpful photos and charted and written instructions, including notes on all the techniques described.

Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and haven’t put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear. If you have an questions about any of my patterns, please feel free to contact me! I’d love to help!
