- Knitting pattern for simple cowl using short rows to showcase a gradient or color set
- Diagram of color placement included
- Suitable for advanced beginners
This quick cowl is knit primarily in the round with short-row shaping. A simple wrap and turn short row works well in garter stitch and there’s no need to pick up the wraps. The pattern is written for a gradient set of five, but can easily be knit in two colors or as many as you’d like! Each section takes a very small amount of yarn, making this cowl a great way to use up your fingering-weight leftovers.
Skills needed: long-tail cast-on, short rows (detailed instructions provided), increasing. This is not a difficult knit, but you will need to take care to keep your place in the instructions!
Finished measurements: 10-25.5 cm tall and 62-84.5 cm in circumference (ranges because of varying circumference and height of piece)
Gauge: 18 stitches to 10 cm in lightly blocked garter stitch
Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
