|'Coast Path' Cotton Cowl|
Spring Cotton Cowl Free Pattern:
This cowl is knitted loosely in a shiny mercerised cotton, giving a light and squishy result which is perfect for spring. Not too warm, but great when there is still a little chill in the air, this is a really useful layering piece for under your coat or over your jumper. Will be a perfect transitional piece too, as it could be great for stopping sunburn if you are hiking in the sunnier months.
|Wear in any number of ways!|
Use 5mm 40cm circular needle, and 50g 4ply cotton.
Cast on 108 stitches. Don't cast on too tightly, and it is preferable to use a stretchy cast on, such as long tail.
Join in the round, taking care not to twist the cast on stitches.
Round 1: *knit 2, purl 2* repeat to the end of the round.
Round 2 and every other round: Work as Round 1 until snood reaches about 9" (or desired length).
Cast off in rib and sew in ends.
Don't forget to add this to your ravelry projects too!
|Perfect for layering|
To celebrate Easter, I'm giving away a Knit Pro knitting needle, and a 100g skein of this gorgeous cotton yarn in indigo blue: that will make you two cowls if you're careful with the weight. Quite apart from being my absolute favourite, indigo blue is a really hot colour at the moment, and flattering on every skin tone. I also find this size needle is super useful for all sorts of hats and things.
