Gauge: 6 STS & 10 rows per 4″ {10cm} square, knit in the pattern below

Weight: 18oz {510g}




The CO edge is the height.

Knit using the seed knit stitch.

Knit holding 2 strands of yarn together throughout.

This cowl is knit flat, when you’re finished knitting you’ll sew the CO & BO edges together to make it a cowl.

CO in any odd number of stitches. If you cast-on an even number of stitches, you’ll create a rib stitch instead of a seed stitch.


Pattern, Knit Flat {Back & Forth}:


All rows: *K1, P1*

You have some options here:

You can stop once you’ve knit 60″ {152cm} and wear this as a scarf or sew the ends together to make it a cowl.

And, you can add fringe if you like. I added mine to the bottom only, if you’d like more fringe I’d recommend getting a 4th skein of yarn. I cut 2 strands of yarn about 9″ long and added them to every other row. (I need to make a video for this!)

I sewed the ends together and added fringe, however if you’re going to add fringe I’d recommend adding it before sewing the ends together. Try it on and see if you’d like to just tuck the ends under to wear it like a cowl. It might give you a little more flexibility in styling it. ;)

Weave in the ends.

Block, if desired.

BO – bind-off in pattern
