Quick & Easy Cowl that you can knit in one or many colors!
Reflecting the different shades that can be found in the sky, the sample is knit in three stunning shades of blue. Choose two, three or even more of your favorite shades to create a cowl all your own. It would be equally beautiful knit in one solid color of a marled or speckled yarn.
The sky's the limit!
Over the last few years I have strived to really go to my stash first before buying new yarn. This cowl was born from the desire to use what I already had instead of purchasing more. I had this yarn & it was so soft & squishy that I knew I need to make it into something special.
I wanted to add to the "squish factor" so I choose a type of broken rib pattern. A combination of knit and purl stitches and ribbing creates little pockets of air and gives the fabric a beautiful drape & loftiness. This makes it light and easy to wear but doubled up & tucked up under a coat provides the perfect warmth.
The pattern is very easy to memorize once established, with only 4 rows to repeat. I give you lots of options on cast on & cast off, as well as color options. Using only ~100 yards of yarn per color so ~300 yards total, you can easily go stash diving for that special yarn to make this cowl uniquely yours.
