Lovely cowl.

I seem to have a thing about cowls at the moment. They are great if you are large in the chest area as you don’t have a bulk of scarf under your coat.
This one was made in stylecraft mardi gras, I don’t have the shade as the ball band has been lost. This was bought again with no project in mind I just liked it.

What I did…..

I cast on 68 stitches, on 6mm needles and did 3 rows garter then joined in the round.
Row 1 & 2 Knit.
Row 3 P2tog, rep
Row 4 Knit 1, Purl 1 in each stitch
Row 5 & 6 Knit.
Continue until long enough, finish on row 6 then do 1 row purl and bind off.
This gives me a nice snug but not tight fitting cowl. To make bigger or smaller increase or decrease in multiples of 2.

I like this as it gives a nice textured look but is easy Tv knitting.
