Snow Bird

On Sale
Added to cart
There’s nothing cozier than humble garter stitch, and adding a pretty lace detail and a decorative top edging adds a bit of interest to the knitting and the finished cowl. Knit in the round from the top down, Snow Bird works up fast in bulky yarn.

Skills required
Long-tail cast-on
Working in the round
Yarn overs

Body of cowl is written and charted.

Yarn weight - Bulky 
Gauge - 13 stitches = 4 inches in lightly blocked garter (worked in the round)
Needle size - US 10½ - 6.5 mm
Yardage - 250 yards (229 m)
Measurements - Approximately 23” around at top; 32” around at bottom: 11” tall after blocking

Note: Even though the given yardage is 250, one skein of K2 will probably be enough (I actually used 228 yards). If you do run a bit short, you can just shorten the bottom ribbing.
