In the time it took me to watch Monsters University and the Ravens football game, I completed my cowl and I love it! And it kept me super warm yesterday, considering it was around 30 degrees all day.
As I wrote in my earlier post, I used size 13 needles and 2 strands of Merino Aran Wool held together (4 balls total). I also needed 4 buttons, as well as a needle and thread for sewing them on.
Here’s what you do:
- cast on 17 stitches (you must cast on stitches in an odd number for the moss stitch)
Row 1: K1, P1 until the end of the row, ending with a knit stitch
Row 2: P1, K1 until the end of the row, ending with a purl stitch
Row 3: P1, K1 until the end of the row, ending with a purl stitch
Row 4: K1, P1 until the end of the row, ending with a knit stitch
- then repeat rows 1-4 until you’ve reached the desired length (for me that was when I was almost done with 4 balls of yarn)
- cast off
- attach the buttons- I sewed decorative buttons going down one side and then one button on the reverse for function
**For placement and sewing of the buttons, take a look at this blog (where I got my inspiration to make the cowl from!).
I love my cowl so much (and got so many compliments on it), that I already started a second one last night. I’m using this soft and beautiful Cashmereno. Hoping to have it done this week!
