Easy Knitted Cowl for Cooler Days

There are those days when a warm scarf is just too much but still it feels a bit cool. This cowl is just perfect for that. It is so leightweight and warm at the same time without being too much. It is made using 3 skeins of sock yarn simultaneously and is very easy to knit. It is made so that it also sits snugly around your neck without being too tight. The interesting effect comes not only from the stitches, but from the variegated yarns used to knit this cowl.

 

 

Easy Knitted Cowl for Cooler Days

Knitting gauge: 10 stitches knitted in the moss stitch / seed stitch pattern creates 10 centimeters (about 4 inches)

Finished size: 40 centimeters (about 15.7 inches) wide and 70 centimeters (about 27.5 inches) long when open, 40 centimeters (about 15.7 inches) wide and 35 centimeters (about 13.8 centimeters) when sewn together as a cowl.

For this project you will need:

- 3 x 50 gram skeins of sock yarn (each skein has 210 meters / about 230 yards in length) in the colors of solid medium
  purple, a light purple
variegated yarn and a medium purple variegated yarn (you can of course choose any three colors
  you like to get the look that you wish to have
- 12 mm circular knitting needles (US size 17)
- scissors
- large eye needle to sew the cowl closed

Knitting Instructions:

Create a swatch using the “Moss Stitch” or “Seed Stitch” and the recommended yarn to make sure you achieve the gauge required for this particular snood. 10 stitches should be about 10 centimeters in width.

Cast on 40 stitches and knit in rows using the moss stitch or seed stitch until you reach a length of 70 centimeters (about 27.5 inches). Once you have achieved that length, simply sew the two short ends together.

Moss Stitch or Seed Stitch:

Row 1: *K1, P1, then repeat from * until the end of the row, turn
Row 2:   Knit or Purl the stitches exactly as you see them before you, turn
Row 3:   *P1, K1, then repeat from * until the end of row, turn
Row 4:   Knit or Purl the stitches exactly as you see them before you, turn

Then repeat rows 1-4 until you reach a length of 70 centimeters (about 27.5 inches).
