Pattern Release: Twist Cowl

A perfect cowl that applies a simple technique for a complicated look. Requires a provisional cast on. Cowl is joined by grafting.

When I started this cowl pattern fresh on the heals of my favorite Twist Shawl pattern, I thought for sure the project would be complete and available on Ravelry in under a month.

I crack myself up.

While I did finish my prototype in a under a month (excluding blocking), it took me another month to finish the Real Deal…then a couple of weeks to get around to grafting and blocking…plus another month to round up my dear friend and knitwear model Becky…plus a week to download the camera…and another few weeks to have two hours of uninterrupted time on the laptop to put everything together.

Or something like that.

So, basically it took me five months (not one!) to finish this project. Had I known, I would have planned differently and would have chosen a brighter, spring-ier color for my model garment. I have been really into aquamarine blues this season…

Oh well. Next time.

I really love this cowl. The twisted stitches are my favorite. Simple texture. It looks fancy, but it isn’t.

If I were musical, I just might start a band called The Twisted Stitches.

But I am not musical. So you are safe. I am going to stick with knitting instead.

DSC_0034This pattern will work with any fingering weight yarn. I used a size 6 needle with Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light (of course…always!) in the Golden Hickory colorway. The pattern is priced at $3.50 USD.

This is also the first time I have made a special point to include metric units in my pattern instructions as well as English. Why the whole world can’t just agree and only use metric, I will never understand…

Thank you for the support! Happy knitting.
