All the style of a shawlette without the fuss of trying to keep it around your neck! This easy to wear cowl is designed to mimic the look of a shawl casually draped as a scarf.
Pattern includes written and charted directions for two gauges to accommodate sport -worsted weight yarn. Knits up fast from the top down with a small amount of yardage and is simple enough for an advanced beginner.
Measurements:Neck Opening: ~17”
Center Front: ~16”
Center Back: ~6”
Materials:Yarn: Yardages listed are generous estimates. It's always better to err on the side of too much yarn rather than too little. When in doubt, buy the extra skein for insurance. When working the SM gauge you will need approximately 220 yards of sport weight yarn. When working the LG gauge you will need approximately 155 yards of worsted weight yarn. Samples were knit in Madelinetosh Pashmina in “Tern” (grey, sm gauge) and Twisted Fiber Art's Catnip in Minstrel Evolution (gradient, lg gauge).
