Cartouche Cowl

I was paging through Japanese stitch dictionaries and found the main pattern used in this cowl. It reminded me of an Egyptian cartouche and I visualized it in a deeper vibrant red. That design, Cartouche Shawl, was published in Knitty, Winter 2011. I’ve since used these stitch patterns in the Cartouche Slouchy Beret and the Cartouche Stole; however, I still wasn’t done with this design and knew that I wanted to do a cowl.

The Cartouche Cowl begins with a provisional cast on and the piece is worked along the circumference and then the two ends are grafted together. The border pattern are slightly modified from the one used in the Cartouche Stole so, if you’ve knit already knit that piece, you’ll want to pay extra attention to the final few rows of the chart.
