Asterisque Cowl Knitting Pattern

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Asterisque Cowl / Shoulder Warmer Knitting Pattern Link to website or photo www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/asterisque-cowl---shoulder-warmer What are you most proud of? I'm happy that Asterisque stands out amongst the many chunky, oversized cowl knitting patterns. Once you learn the stitch pattern, it's a very easy and quick knit, but with great impact, rich in texture and style. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid of BIG knitting needles. Size 19 US needles really are the definitive size to use with Asterisque, which can be a little intimidating to those not used to working with that size. My advice: use the most lightweight wood you can find (bamboo is great!).

What you will need

  • 106 yards super bulky yarn (one skein Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick)
  • size 19 US knitting needles
  • two 1.25-1.75" buttons
