Haku cowl – pdf knitting pattern

On Sale
Added to cart
The dragonscale stitch pattern is combined with subtle beading to create a gleaming, elegant cowl that flares gently around the base. Choose beads with more contrast to up the wow factor, or leave them out entirely for a quieter look.

Photo tutorials for beading with a crochet hook, or with needle and thread, are included. Charted as well as written instructions are provided.

Thanks to my wonderful testers, and to Kate Atherley for tech editing!

Difficulty: Intermediate
Skills used: Working in the round, increasing and decreasing, beading using a crochet hook or sewing needle (optional; tutorial included).

One size: 48 cm / 19 in around at top, unstretched; 34 cm / 13.5 in high

You will need:
290 m / 320 yds of fingering weight yarn. Choose a yarn that is smooth and not strongly variegated, to show the stitch pattern. I recommend a silk blend for drape and sheen, to hold the blocking.
