Knitting Pattern Release: Cinque Terre Cowl

I’m pleased to announce that I just released my first for sale knitting pattern!  It uses one 100 gram skein of fingering weight yarn and is called Cinque Terre Cowl.  It features a sophisticated texture made by passing slipped stitches over knit stitches.

Two wrap layeredThe Cinque Terre cowl is knit in the round and uses one skein of sock yarn, perfect for that single skein you can’t decide how to use. You can wear your cowl as a single looped long scarf, double looped as a casual mid-chest cowl or triple looped for a snugly neck warmer. The stitch pattern is provided in a chart, as well as written out. Percentages of yarn used are also provided if you wish to modify the size of your cowl.
