Esporófits Cowl

A cowl pattern matching the Esporòfits mittens is now available :)

This lacy cowl is knitted in the round, with knit/purl and bobble panels, framed by faggoting. 
The cowl is knitted in DK weight, but you can also use the fingering weight you used for your mittens, held double.


Skills: This pattern is for beginner knitters. Skills necessary are knitting in the round, simple cabling, bobbles, increasing and decreasing. Other special stitches and techniques are described, with pictures.


Sizing: Ample one size. The cowl measures 48 cm of diameter, and stretches up to 64 cm. It is 19.5 cm tall, and can be lenghtened easily by adding rows.

A little bit of lace-weight (5 strands) yarn is used to turn the hem, but you can use some scrap yarn in DK weight/doubled fingering, this yarn will be slightly visible.
