Rhubarb Crumble Cowl
This cowl has lots of texture, from small seed stitch pebbles to large bobbles to little eyelet holes, that is meant to mimic the topping of a good crumble. What’s more, the pattern is easy to memorize, just like a good crumble topping recipe. Because this is knit in a DK yarn and takes just one skein, it also works up quickly and makes for good gift-knitting.
Finished measurements: 9” (23 cm) x 10.5” (27 cm)
DK-weight yarn, 220-250 yd (202-229 m). A note about yardage: the sample used 213 yd, and many DK skeins have 220 yd. If you find yourself a smidge short, skip working the very last round and just bind off instead. Nobody will notice.
