This is a really easy cowl to wear just when the temperature drops and you need a little extra at the neck. I made mine to wear in the winter and found myself looking for it to wear last night. It was ideal just to keep a draft from my neck outside for a garden barbecue. Optional cast on and off is to make picots. I give instructions for a picot cast off
Materials - 15g of kidsilk haze or a ny cobweb yarn (great for stash busting a treasured piece of lace weight yarn)
4mm straight needles
Cast on 100 stitches
Knit 50 rows (or until you finish your scrap of yarn)
Cast off 3 stitches then make first picot by *casting on 2 stitches and casting off 7 stitches**. Repeat from * to ** until all stitches are cast off (you will have 3 stitches to cast off at the end).
Sew sides together to make the cowl.
No need to block as it curls nicely to wear.
