Christmas Treat Cowl
Matching socks, hat, fingerless gloves, and cowl are available separately in my pattern store or you can save by purchasing the complete set as one collection.
Method: This stranded colorwork cowl is knit in the round from the top down and can be worked in three or more contrasting colors (cowl shown uses four colors).
It can be knitted on dpns, by magic loop, or on a 15” (40 cm) circular.
Please note the colorwork design in this pattern is charted not written out. You need to be prepared to read and work from charts in order to enjoy knitting this design.
Size: This pattern is written in one size measuring 22.75” (58cm) in circumference and 10.5” (26.5 cm) tall, but this is adjustable. Instructions on how to alter it are given in the pattern.
Yarn: You can use any 4 ply yarn that you like and with which you can get gauge to knit this cowl.
This is a great pattern to experiment with color and use mini skeins or any leftovers lurking in your stash. Be creative, have fun, but keep in mind changes will affect yardage and number of ends to weave in. The amounts of each color required will depend on how many colors you pick and where you choose to use them in the cowl. As a guide:
