The Order of the Garter Pattern - Digital Download

by Sharyn Anhalt, GingerSnap Designs

An orderly sequence of garter stitch using two distinct yarns creates a unique texture reminiscent of medieval chain maille. Cowl is knit flat, then joined to create a loop - or, keep knitting and create a scarf of your desired length. Three colors of fluffy soft Katia Cotton Merino are alternated with Katia Air Lux to create a cozy double loop cowl with a bit of shine.

Worked entirely in the knit stitch, this project is suitable for beginning knitters that are comfortable reading a pattern, but more advanced knitters will find the project interesting and relaxing. You will need a circular needle, as the pattern requires the ability to slide all the stitches back to the beginning to knit two passes of each row.

Finished dimensions of double loop cowl are 9” wide x 54” around. If knitting a scarf, your finished length will be 60-70” long. 


Yarn A = Katia Concept Cotton Merino, one ball each of three colors

Yarn B = Katia Air Lux

US size 7 needle, or size for gauge. Piece is worked flat but you will want to use a circular needle because the stitches need to slide to the opposite end to knit each row twice. See set up steps.

Darning needle, for weaving in ends
