A cowl scarf is extremely useful if you lead a busy life style. It's a hat and scarf in one, doesn't slip off, and is very handy for walking dogs when you bend over often and want to keep your scarf around your neck. I made the one in the picture for my daughter, Catherine. In the image above, the scarf is rolled. Below you can see other views.
This is a very easy pattern. The yarn I used contains mohair and alpaca which is super soft and drapes nicely when made with such large needles. It is so very comfy to wear.
Cowl Scarf - Knit
Materials: Size 15 circular knitting needles; Size 6 super bulky yarn.
I used Bernat Galaxy, 1.75 oz, 50 gr, color Mercury for this project. 4 skeins.
Gauge: 9 st x 12 rows = 4"
Size: Adult. To measure for a child, measure from forehead back and over top of head and to back of neck for length; measure around edges of shoulders for diameter.
Finished size: 44" in diameter, 18" in length.
Cast on 100 stitches.
Join being careful not to twist and knit in round for 20 inches (flat).
Cowl will naturally roll slightly at beginning and end.
The images show different ways the scarf can be rolled and folded. It can also be pulled up from the back of the neck as a hood.
