West Finchley Cowl
add to cart
A quick knit in bulky yarn that makes a very cozy, warm cowl.
Notes on yarn: just about any bulky yarn that’s soft enough to wear around the neck and that shows off cables well will work. Ideally, you should get about 3 sts/inch in stockinette stitch but gauge isn’t super critical (as long as the cowl fits over your head, that is).
What you need to know:
Finished size: 16.5″ top circumference x 7″ long (42cm x 17.75cm).
Yarn: Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky (85% wool, 15% alpaca); 100gr/108 yds. One ball.
Needles: US 10.5 16” circular or dpns.
Gauge: 14 sts x 17 rows = 4”/10cm in stockinette st.
Notions: Cable needle, tapestry needle for weaving in
