This is part of the Bulk Trio: each individual pattern is $6 or the set of all three is $12.
- choose from easier simple color version or more advanced switching colors version
- any gauge, worsted or heavier
- three height options and three length options
- simple color version works great with color blocks
- work with one yarn at a time (no stranding)
- either version looks great with 1 solid paired with 1 self-striping or variegated
- double layered cowl constructed with no twisting
- can be worn several different ways
This reversible cowl for any gauge (worsted or heavier weight is recommended) uses a 2-color slip-stitch pattern which makes for completely different looks on the two sides; and the fit of the cowl will differ depending on which side is out, and on how it’s positioned, giving you multiple different looking cowls in one!
The construction makes a cozy double-layered cowl with no twists like a normal cowl wrapped double around your neck, and with lots of different ways to wear it, tight or loose.
There is a simple version, in which the same colors act as the main and contrasting colors throughout the whole thing (but you can add stripes or color blocks if you want to!); and then there’s the more complex switching colors version, in which you make diagonal lines back and forth throughout, flipping which is acting as the main color and which is the contrasting color.
Use any weight from worsted to super bulky, and pick out your cowl’s height and length according to your gauge and your style preferences.
2 (or more) colors in any weight yarn from worsted to super bulky (or a finer weight to hold double or triple stranded); sizes vary significantly, as any height can be paired with any length, so yardage estimates are just given in ranges, not by size
-- worsted: 320-700 yards / 290-640 meters
-- aran: 275-600 yards / 250-550 meters
-- bulky: 250-500 yards / 230-460 meters total
