FO: Rachelle’s Cowl

_MG_0334

Another new pattern! I was so inspired by Mere’s Cowl that I wanted one of my own. This design is of similar construction as Mere’s but with a little different twist.

I started with a simple knit stockinette section and then incorporated the same eyelet section as Mere’s. This was a SUPER fast knit, especially with the stockinette sections. The stockinette section does make the edges roll, but I kinda don’t mind that style? I like that it kinds of rolls up on itself it makes it super comfy and warm and cozy. The knit band and lace section is repeated four times to create 48 inch long by 8 inch wide finished object.

I wore this to work last week and I got LOTS of attention and compliments. The only downside is that due to the rolling property it does need a light blocking after a few wears, just to keep the shape. I really love it though. I have launched it as a free pattern on Rav, find the link here!

  2. Why are there no pattern instructions for certain rows? 12, 23, 34. I’m just beginning to expand my knitting skills so maybe this is something obvious that I’m missing. Thnx

    • You were missing nothing, lol, you were seeing a failure of my word processing system. I amended the pattern and didn’t update the auto numbering. I have since updated the post with the correct numbering for you! Great catch 🙂 Happy Knitting!
