It’s time for the cowl! Shepherd Worsted is a wonderfully soft and fluffy yarn, and it knits up into a lovely drapey and snuggly cowl. Using similar design elements to the fingerless mitts, it will make a lovely matching set, but don’t worry, there are still some surprises! As with the mitts, there is a bobble, so if you plan to use a button be sure and skip it!
The instructions provided make a long loop cowl that measures 48” in circumference after blocking. If you would like to make different size, you can easily make this cowl smaller or larger. The trick is to add or remove stitches in quantities of 4. For example, if you would like a short cowl that is 24" around, simply cut the cast on number in half, and then choose the closest number that is divisible by 4. If you want a size that is somewhere in between, than as long as your cast on number is divisible by 4 than the cowl should work just fine! Also, if you don't want to change the cast on amount, but would like a wider cowl, it will be easy to do so at the end of the pattern.
