    This is the perfect piece for the early mornings that give the first hint of the colder seasons coming on. A shawl-cowl hybrid that gives the look of a shawl draped kerchief-style around the neck without the bulk or fiddly ends, Hint of Autumn is just the thing for a slight fall chill and knits up quickly in sport-weight yarn.

    Skills required: increasing, decreasing, yarn overs, working in the round

    Finished measurements: neck opening: 63.5 cm; bottom edge circumference: 132 cm; depth in front: 43 cm

    Gauge: 22 stitches to 10 cm of gently blocked stockinette stitch (both flat and circular). Gauge is not critical but will affect the finished size and the meterage required

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
