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 soft and fluffy Katia Cotton Merino are alternated with Katia Air Lux to create a cozy double loop cowl with a bit of shine. Both yarns may be hand washed, lay flat to dry.
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. Kit includes all yarn needed for the project plus a print copy of The Order of the Garter pattern. You will also need a US size 7 circular knitting needle (any length), plus stitch markers and a darning needle (not included).
Finished dimensions of double loop cowl are 9" wide x 54" around. If knitting a scarf, your finished length will be 60-70" long. Choose from two color combos; Warm Neutral is a mix of black, charcoal and coppery brown and Cool Blue is a mix of jewel toned blues and greens.
A print copy of the pattern is included as part of your kit. Would you like just the pattern, or prefer an electronic copy? Digital download copies of this design may be purchased separately.
