Cowl NELLY / Knitting Pattern

Cowl NELLY is an exciting little project - perfect to train short rows the easy way. Due the refined bind off method, the cowl is completely seamless.

The pattern can be worked in one colorway or is ideal for use up wasted yarn. The design demands on a playful handling of the geometric forms and colors. I have chosen black as main color and combined it with bright colored yarns. Try other combinations or materials.

I used Drops "Nepal" by Garnstudio, a cozy blend of wool and alpaca. Alternative you can use Drops "Big Merino" by Garnstudio. For both needle size 5 mm / US 8 is perfect!

  • Dimensions: 24/37 x 32 cm - 10/15 x 13 inches

  • Gauge: 14 sts and 32 rows per 10 cm / 4 over garter stitch using 5 mm / US 8 needle

  • Please wash your swatch and check your gauge again. Sometimes you have to change your needle size! If you have too many stitches to 10 cm / 4″ try using thicker needles. If you have too few stitches, try using finer needles.

I love to develop beautiful designs for children and women and to write the patterns. As a natural born Berliner, I am inspired by the pulse of my city, my two lively girls and modern art. I like geometrical concepts and structures, as you can find them also in architecture. I prefer to use finest natural materials for my work. My key focus is keeping a knitting project exciting. At the same time, I am working on the best way for an uncomplicated making.

Happy knitting!
