Snow Day Cowl
Knitted on a ‘snow day’ last year, when school was closed for the day! Its nothing fancy, but makes a soft & snuggly cowl. The garter stitch rib gives structure without distorting the cowl. This is the first pattern I have written up, but I have knitted it twice.
Take a skein of chunky yarn (about 200 yards needed) , such as Malabrigio Chunky & circular 8mm needles.
cast on 64 stitches & join
Knit a row, purl a row, knit a row, purl a row to give a ‘garter stitch’ edge.
Change to ‘garter stitch rib’ i.e. 1 row k2, p2 & then 1 row all knit.
Continue until cowl is almost the required length.
Repeat ‘garter stitch edge’ & bind off loosely.
Serve with a good thick jacket & stay warm!
