Cozy Cowl

January 21, 2009

A quick project to be used in place of (or, when it’s really cold, in addition to) a scarf.  It’s warm, lofty, and wonderfully stretchy.

Materials:
1 skein Foxfire Fibers Cormo Silk Alpaca (190 yards/skein), or approximately 100 yards of any DK or light worsted yarn

size 6 needles

Gauge:

6 stitches x 8 rows = 1 inch (but gauge is not critically important for this project)

Finished piece measures approximately 5″ x 21″ before sewing ends together; to make it wider or narrower simply add or subtract stitches in multiples of four.

    Thanks for this pattern. I am going to knit this tonight with some left over mohair – fawn coloured – and also make a flower to put on it with some left over bits of chocolate and burnt orange wool. It’s ideal and just what I was looking for. Thank you.
    The computer is trying to tell me I have made a mistake spelling “coloured” but ……I am in Melbourne Australia……..That’s how far your pattern is travelling
    Cheers and thanks again
