Brought to you by the talented Amy Kate Sutherland, this chic accessory is simply perfect for bringing your outfit to the next level.

The pattern includes both written instructions and chart so you can choose whichever form of instruction you are more comfortable with.

Furthermore, the cowl comes in a single size and once completed, would measure 9 inches wide and have a circumference of about 42 inches. That is about 23 cm in width and 106 cm in circumference.

To make this accessory, you will need Knit Picks’ High Desert Worsted Yarn. It is a soft and beautiful worsted-weight yarn made of 100% USA Shaniko wool. This yarn is simply perfect for making gorgeous garments and accessories, like this piece that we’re making.

You will also need a size US 8 Circular knitting needle. That is a 5 mm needle if you are using the metric system.

Moreover, if you’re a beginner knitter, you can use the simpler long-tail cast-on method instead of the provisional cast-on. The long-tail cast-on is probably the most popular of all the cast-on methods. It is suitable for many types of knitting projects.

We have an illustrated tutorial for the long-tail cast-on if you want to learn it. You can find this tutorial here: Learn How to Do A Long-Tail Cast on.
