Undulating Crescents Cowl

Crescents Cowl

It is not too early to begin knitting your knits for fall. The Crescents Cowl uses a beautiful lace stitch to create a cascading waterfall of eyelet openings that undulate around the cowl. Worked in luxurious pure merino wool, this item will become one of your go-to for this upcoming fall/winter.

LOOM:  All-n-One Loom (100 pegs used).

YARN:  Approx 200 yds of worsted weight pure merino superwash. Candombe was used in sample.

NOTIONS:  Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

GAUGE: 11sts x 16 rows = 2 inches.

SIZE:  10” wide x 11” high. To make wider—increase by 10 sts (wider cowls must use a different loom than the All-n-One.

  1. There is a Rnd 19. “Rnds 18-20: *p1, k9; rep from * to end.” This means that it is Rnds 18, 19, and 20, so yes, it is the same as Rnd 18.

  2. Tricia, you repeat round 9-20 until the item measures approximately 10 inches from the cast on edge. If you want it longer (you will need more than the 1 skein of yarn), you can continue to make it longer, then finish off with the last 8 rounds in the pattern.
