On the 10th day of our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway, my true love gave to me, a Welted Cowl from Sweet Georgia Yarns.
Today’s Project: Welted Cowl
Design by Jane Richmond
- 1 skein SweetGeorgia Yarns Silk Mist in Silver (325 yd / 300 m per 0.9 oz / 25 g skein; 60% fine kid mohair, 40% cultivated silk)
- NEEDLES: Size 6 US / 4 mm circular needle, 24” / 60 cm long. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.
- NOTIONS: 1 stitch marker, tapestry needle
21 sts and 28 rows = 4” / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch. To save time and ensure accurate sizing, check finished gauge.
25” / 63.5 cm circumference and approximately 16” / 40.5 cm high
This pattern is intended to use up every last inch of yarn, if you’ve made a particularly large swatch you may need to unravel it to achieve the full height of the cowl.
Using long tail method, CO 132 sts. CO loosely to maintain a stretchy edge. Join for working in the rnd, being careful not to twist.
Knit 5 rnds.
Purl 5 rnds.
Repeat these 10 rnds 13 times more or until very little yarn remains from the skein of Silk Mist. Cowl should measure approximately 15 ½” / 39.5 cm when laid flat.
Knit 4 rnds.
BO very loosely. Using a larger needle allows you to achieve a tidy edge while maintaining a loose bind off.
Break yarn and weave in ends.
