Gloria Cowl

    Newer Older

    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.

      New and want to try knitting this as a gift but need to know is thisa cowl that can be pulled up over the head kinda like a hoodie?

    16. DuganWa 53 months ago | reply

      Sorry, goofed! Trying to find if this lovely pattern is one that can be pulled up over the head like a hoodie while still partially keeping the neck warm. This question is difficult to form clearly so that I am understood but hoping you will know what I mean. Thanks again.
