Burt's Cowl

What advice would you give someone starting this project? My first cowl followed the pattern, but with the 2nd cowl I did a provisional cast on and, after blocking, bound off with a 3 needle bind off, eliminating seaming. It looks as if it was knit in the round. Much nicer than pattern's instructions for binding off and seaming ends.

You Can Make This

knittyk made Burt's Cowl with:

  • Black cowl: Purchased the Captivating Cowl kit from Craftsy. Yarn provided was Lion Brand Hometown. Green cowl: Malobrigo Worsted "lettuce". 2 cakes
  • rotating every 2nd row to prevent pooling.
  • US 9 / 5.5 mm / UK 5
