Quick & Nifty Cowl

Bits of leftover yarn are always rolling around in my house, some of it sits for months, years all lonely in the “leftover” corner of the stash room. I loved this yarn and I wanted it to be used rather than it sitting all lonely with the rest of the stash. I had just enough leftover yarn to knit a small cowl/scarf.

Loom: AllnOne Loom, one rail
Yarn: 40 yards of worsted weight yarn. Knit Picks City Tweed HW, Morning Glory color was used in sample.
Notions: tapestry needle, 2 small buttons
Gauge: 8sts x 12 rows= 2inches in stockinette
Stitches: k, p, k2tog, yo
Size: 2-1/2 inches x 34 inches

Cast on 14 sts, prepare to work a flat panel.
*Row 1: p
Row: k
Row 3: p
Row 4: k
Row 5: p2, k to last 2sts, p2
Row 6: k

Repeat last two rows: 14 more times. *

Repeat from * to *: 5 times

Next row 1: p
Next row: k
Next row: p2tog to end of row. 6sts remain
Next row: k2tog, yo, k2, yo, k2tog
Next row: p
Bind off with basic bind off method. Weave ends in. Steam block lightly.
Sew buttons to cast on edge side, be sure to align them to the buttonholes created on the bind off side.

Voila!!! Wear it as a long thin scarf or wrap it around your neckline twice.

  • Is this basically a tube? I would love to try something like this.. I need to check out your Buttonhole technique!

  • Misty,
    It is a flat panel, a long thin flat panel :). I guess you could knit is a tube too.

  • So it is buttoned together to make a tube though, right?

  • Isela,
    I am not in to win the looms as I have every loom made by AKB (2 of some). Just wanted to say what a great idea for a contest. I keep up with all going on. I am currently working on the All ‘N’ One to create a sweater for men. Not many patterns for them. Keep your fingers crossed that it works out. Really enjoy seeing your work, You are great!

  • I think because knitting tends to curl in on the sides, it gives the appearance of a tube but it’s actually not.


  • I really love this pattern!

  • I love all your patterns Isela – this looks nice and easy! (Shared this on facebook and twitter for the contest as well – total of 14 points so far :) )))

  • will this work for the adult sock loom?? I just got one and would really love to learn it, but have yet to find a good pattern that is for this loom.

  • It will work, but it will be a little smaller/thinner than mine.

  • Isela,

    I don’t understand how do you get 6 stiches with 14 stiches. Could you please explain?

    Thans in advance,
