Mossy Cowl

Since the last time I blogged, I have continued preparing for the upcoming craft fair...which is in 3 days!!! I'm quickly running short on time! I'm in the process of staining a couple of boxes I found at Toom (a German hardware store) that I will be setting up for a jewelry display. I found the inspiration from Pinterest in which a pinner used wine boxes/crates. I'm excited to see how it turns out!

I've also managed to knit up a couple garter stitch scarves with some ribbon-like yarn and large needles and a heart tam.

On top of that, I've come up with a pattern to make a cowl that matches my Slouchy Moss Hat! I love that it looks good both with matching the same color and mixing and matching the colors. :)

 So for the second time in a week, I present you with a new pattern. :D

The Mossy Cowl

Materials Needed:
Size US 15/10mm needles to knit in the round
80-100 yards of bulky-super bulky yarn
Tapestry needle to weave in ends
Stitchmarker to mark the beginning of the round

CO 52 with long tail cast on
Rows 1-4: *k1tbl, p1* repeat from * to * around
Row 5: *p1, k1* repeat from * to * around
Row 6: *k1, p1* repeat from * to * around

Repeat rows 5-6 eleven times, for a total of 24 rows. Repeat row 5 once more.

Repeat rows 1-4, then bind off.Use a tapestry needle to weave in ends
Block as desired.

And now you have a matching set to keep you warm through the rest of the winter! :D Happy knitting!

The selling of projects resulting in use of this pattern is permitted, but please don't sell the pattern itself, and always provide the link/URL to the pattern where you sell it so others can enjoy crafting as well!

I LOVE those hats! Wish I could make something like that!

Love your website but one suggestion. Make the writing in black instead of the blue on blue background. It is very hard for "older eyes" to read. I'd love to look around but can't make out what anything says.
