Chapel House Cowl

On Sale
Added to cart
The Chapel House Cowl features a combination of ribbing and cable work to create a textured winter accessory. The patterns created take inspiration from the architecture of Harrogate Spa Town, particularly the archways and columns that feature on so many of the town’s beautiful buildings. Chapel House, which gives its name to this design, is an especially fine example of this.

This accessory is worked bottom up and features sections of ribbing and sections of cablework throughout. For the upper ribbing, there are two options: one with decreases and one without. If worked, the decreases cinch in the top of the cowl, creating a more snug fit.

The wearer is 5’10” / 178cm with a 37” / 92.5cm chest circumference. The sample has been worked in size Adult Large, with Cable Pattern 1 and 2 worked twice and with the upper ribbing decreases.

This garment is graded into four sizes: Toddler (Child, Adult Small, Adult Large).
Cowl Circumference: 17.5 (18.5, 21.75, 26.25)“ / 43.5 (46.5, 54.5, 65.6) cm.
Cowl Height: 6.75 (8.75, 13.5, 13.5)” / 16.5 (21.5, 33.5, 33.5) cm
Adult sizes can opt to decrease cowl height to the same as the child size if preferred.

Using 4mm / US size 6 needles, or needle size required to meet gauge, 22 stitches over 30 rounds in the cabled stitch pattern, blocked, creates a 4x4”/10x10cm square.
Ribbing circumferences assume you are working 6 sts per 1” / 2.5 cm.

The sample has been worked using The Harrogate Yarn Co.’s Mercer Double Knit base (245m / 268yds per 100g) in colourway Agatha’s Claret.
