I thought I would share the pattern with you. It is easy and quick and only uses one ball of yarn. The pattern is a mock cable lace set off by a twisted rib. I love it because it is super squishy, soft, and warm.
16″ around, 6.5″ height
1 ball Debbie Bliss Pure Silk (100% silk, 125m) color 27002
16″ US Size 6 needles
6.25 stitches per inch in pattern without stretching
Abbreviations – k1 tbl = knit 1 stitch through the back of the loop
Cast on 100 stitches, place marker and join for knitting in the round.
Row 1 – *k2, p1, k1 tbl, p1, repeat from * to the end of the round
Row 2 – *k1, yo, k1, p1, k1 tbl, p1, repeat from * to the end of the round
Row 3 – *k3, p1, k1 tbl, p1, repeat from * to the end of the round
Row 4 – *k3, pass the 3rd stitch on the right needle over the first 2 knit stitches on the right needle, p1, k1 tbl, p1, repeat from * to the end of the round
Repeat these rows until desired length.
BO in rib pattern after completing row 4.
NOTE: The number of stitches are increased in row 2 and decreased back to the original number in row 4.
When making this cowl I only had 1 yard of yarn left at the end, if intending to make this patten longer or wider you will need more than 1 ball of yarn.
The pattern is very stretchy and pulls on easily.
I took that myself, so ya.
