A Little Grey Cowl

Scarborough Knitted ScarfSeriously, this Stockholm Scarf pattern makes such a beautiful cowl! I really cut the size of this project to meet the two little skeins of Ella Rae Extrafine Heathers I had on hand. (Only 170ish yards). Using larger needles opened it up a bit, which is just right for the warmer weather parts of the world we inhabit. The project is so easy too – knit flat and seamed together. I see dozens of these in my future.

Knit Cowl or ScarfI love how the stitch pattern is completely reversible, which makes the cowl so wearable and convertible. Whether you scrunch it down, fold it over, or flip it into a mobius – it all manages to looks equally great and well put together.

A nice result of my U.S. visit is having my lovely daughter available to model the cowl for me. I haven’t seen it since. Guess I’d better get another one on the needles for myself! But, you know – I think this one suits her!

Knit CowlThanks to the Carefree Cowl Knit Along for inspiring me to whip out Carli’s new Little Grey Cowl. If you’re on the fence about starting your own cowl project, there’s still a week left!

    I LOVE the little grey cowl! I have read through the Stockholm scarf pattern but am not sure how to adjust the stitch count for the smaller size like you created. Can you please tell me what your cast on number was? And what needle size you used? Thanks so much.

      Hi Rosie, I used size 11 needles and I believe I cast on half the stitches the pattern indicated. Hope that helps!
