This week's free pattern: Light as a feather cowl


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

Yarn needle



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.
