This is as simple and soothing as a stroll in the woods. Using only knit stitches, you work back and forth (and occasionally in the round) to create wedges of colour that stack on top of each other in gentle folds. No purling, no seaming, no stress – just easy short row turns (tutorial included). Anleitung auch auf Deutsch!

One size: 61cm / 24in circumference, approximately 28cm / 11in high

This cowl uses five 20g mini-skeins of fingering weight yarn. It could easily be extended to six or more, giving a little extra warmth around the neck. Although it’s knit almost entirely back and forth, you do need to join in the round, so a circular needle is required.

Suitable for beginners.
Skills used: knit, kfb increase, short rows (tutorial included), work in the round, lace cast-off (instructions included).

You will need:
100g fingering yarn – 5 x miniskeins

(100% superwash merino singles; 366 m / 400 yds per 100 g)

If you have more yarn available, extra wedges can easily be added for a taller cowl.
