Calico Cowl Pattern - Digital Download


Add to Cart
I designed this for the person needing to make a last minute gift! it is a quick knit - it took me under two hours but I am a fast knitter. You start with a provisional cast on then knit the cowl flat and on the bias and finish with grafting. If you hate Kitchener, you can use a 3 needle bind off but you will feel the seam.

The cowl is knit on size US 15 needles holding the two yarns together. Water is a brushed Alpaca yarn and, like mohair, it is knit on a bigger needle allowing the fluff to thrive. Water makes the cowl soft and squishy and Millefiori provides the color changes - they play really well together!  We have created a few kits you might like!
