Cotton Eye Jo Cowl Infinity Scarf Snood Knitting Pattern
When I was at school we had a singing lesson each week and our teacher had a fondness for the song, ‘Cotton Eye Jo,’ which kept playing in my head as I was choosing the yarn for this cowl, James C Brett Cotton On DK. The song kept replaying as I knitted the cowl different times in different colour ways and so ‘Cotton Eye Jo’ it became.
The chosen yarn is a cool and comfortable cotton mix blended with acrylic for wearability. The coordinating pattern blocks can all be completed with a knowledge of only Knit and Purl stitches and the cowl is versatile in its wearing length. It is also satisfying to knit as progress is marked by the changing colours/patterns. The pattern has 4 pages and is equally suitable for beginners and experienced knitters alike.

I wouldn't say I forget everything else when I'm designing... but I do drink a lot of cold coffee! I'm an obsessive knitter who began writing patterns whenever one I bought proved disappointing or when I couldn't find quite what I wanted My patterns are designed to be as easy as possible to make and as straightforward as possible to make up. They're designed to be fun!
