Simple 4ply Cowl

The Woolly Brew Free Pattern Simple Cowl in Opal Sock Yarn and Socks Yeah 4ply

 

Combining Opal's self-patterning sock yarn and the solid colours of Socks Yeah 4ply, this tall cowl is a simple knit using circular needles. It's a great first 'in-the-round' project.

The self-patterning part uses 50g, or half a ball, of a Opal 4ply sock yarn. The solid colour, with simple to work polka dot holes, is one 50g hank of Socks Yeah 4ply.

It's an incredibly versatile pattern.

  • Knit the whole cowl using the self-patterning sock yarn.
  • Knit the whole cowl using a solid colour of Socks Yeah 4ply
  • Knit a shorter cowl
  • Stripe it!

I like the cowl tall, so that I can fold it in half. You can either have a flash of colour on the inside...

Or have the block colour on the outside...
