Jeanette – Free Cowl Pattern!

I’m on a designing binge lately – though to my shame I confess I have an embarrassing number of WIPs – including (gasp!) Christmas knitting that is long overdue. But really, what’s more exciting than getting an idea in your head and bringing it to life? Against such fun my poor WIPS, including the shawl-that-just-won’t-end don’t stand a chance.

The Jeanette Cowl is like a collection of my favourite things – it’s a worsted weight, one skein project,  simple without being boring, classy and good for quick project gratification :) The finished cowl is seamed together to create pockets for a drawstring that gathers it fetchingly at the neck, or is let out to maximize warmth.

You will need 100 grams of worsted weight. A quick word of advice here – though it’s not mandatory, to really shine this piece needs a wet block before seaming. Therefore, I don’t recommend acrylic, or acrylic blends. Wool, wool blends with merino, cashmere or alpaca, all this is perfect :)

The sample is knit using Classic Elite Yarns, Vista, in the colourway ‘Alabaster’, purchased from Eweknit here in Toronto :)
