Gloria Cowl

Yarn: Yarn Pirate BFL sock

Needles: US 8 - 16 inch circ

Pattern: My own "Gloria Cowl" [Ravelry]

5 stitches = 1 inch

Hight = 11", Width (of flattened tube) = 10"


Here's my cowl recipe:

Yarn: fingering weight - knit with 2 strands (stagger the colorway - this solved my problem with pooling)

-Loosely cast on an odd number of stitches - around 99 stitches (place marker at start of round)

-join - be sure that your stitches are not twisted

-Knit 1 round

-Seed stitch (K1, P1) around 3 rounds (round 2 starts with P1)

-knit, knit, knit - I knit until I was almost out of yarn - about 12 inches

-To finish, knit 3 rounds of seed stitch, knit 1 round and bind off.


Enjoy the snuggly, cowl-y goodness whether inside with a book and a cup of tea, or outside braving the elements.
