Oooh I love releasing a new pattern, this is a one skein cowl pattern that uses Noro Taiyo Sport, which is actually a DK weight. The pattern is worked in the round and has a combination ribbing and lace pattern that moves the yarn around with yarn overs and stacked decreases. This creates waving stripes in the pattern and it looks pretty darn nice in whatever yarn you use, either striping or variegated. You can find the Cottina Cowl on Ravelry here.
One size 22” circumference at top, 30” circumference at bottom, 14.5” tall
Noro Taiyo Sport [60% cotton, 15% silk, 15% wool, 10% nylon, 349yds/100g ] color #06 1 skein
1 set US #7/4.5mm 24 inch circular needle and 16” circular needle
1 set US#7/4.5mm dpns if not using 16” circular needle.
19 sts/22 rows = 4” over charted pattern.
Gauge is not critical for this pattern.
This cowl is worked from the bottom up in the round. To increase the circumference of this cowl you can add stitches in increments of 16 and work additional repeats of the chart.
The Cottina Cowl is a quick knit and I actually knit the entirety of it on a last minute trip to Tacoma in February. We made a jaunt to the coast so I could check out the marketplace at the Madrona Fiber Retreat and also to take the kids to
(yes we have a disability placard lol)
Because really, sharks need cowls too.
