Amsterdam Cowl KAL

Just a few days ago I published my Leaves and Spikes Headband pattern. As I mentioned back then I love the chevron stitch and the stripes, guess what…

Yesterday my new pattern Amsterdam Cowl went live, it’s a pattern that I love, there is a lot of me in there, colors, textures, combinations and lots of fun. I meant to do something playful, quick, engaging; in first place for my knitting students; in second for me.

I was aiming for something versatile and great for many different combinations, no matter if it’s business or casual style. Here it is, I hope you like it and want to make one for yourself or someone else!

The pattern is easy and challenging at the same time, could be mindless, but not too much.

This cowl is seamless, although is knitted flat. It starts with a provisional cast on that will be joined using the grafting method known as Kitchener stitch.

It’s worked in 2 sections; first the colour section with 2 or more colours (mind the length of yarn that you’ll need); then the lace section is worked with a different and shiny colour to stand out from the first section.

I have used Gatsby, Capri and Bolero by Katia and G-B Wolle Carina for this sample.
