Knit this beautiful, colorful cowl on your machine
Discover fabulous colorwork with this beautiful jewel-tone gradient cowl.

This exclusive kit is a reinvented popular pattern now made in worsted-weight yarn for faster results!

Although the HK pattern is knit in the round, you can knit the cowl flat and neatly add a seam.

Patterning machine (punchard or electronic):
Copy the designer's stitch pattern or choose one of your own!

Non-patterning machine: (LK-150 or other)
Knitting this on a non-patterning machine would be tedious, but not impossible. Choose a more symmetric stitch pattern to make manually selecting needles easier.

Knit the Kit or Do-it-yourself - SKILLS YOU NEED

Although the pattern in the kit is knit in the round, machine knitters can knit this flat.
The cowl is basically a long rectangle.
The beauty is in the yarn, colorways and stitch pattern.

If you can knit in Fairisle, YOU CAN KNIT THIS!

    TIPS : Whether you knit from the kit or design your own:

  • Swatching is not optional
  • For easier seaming, maintain the edge stitches in a single color. In other words, don't carry the stitch pattern (and color changes) all the way to the edge stitches
  • Cast on with waste yarn and ravel cord (scrap on) and Scrap off
  • If you seam the long edges first on the machine, use Kitchener stitch by hand to seam the short cast on and bind off edges
  • If you seam the short cast on and bind off edges first (try Kitchener on the machine), you'll need to mattress stitch the long edge by hand
