Warm Wool Cowl Pattern


September 21, 2012 by theknittersnewt

Since I dyed my yarns various shades of the same color, I thought it would be cool to knit similar yet slightly differing colors together.  Not only were the colors great, but knitting with two yarns creates a very warm piece, perfect for the cold winters we have here in Minnesota.  This pattern can me found in pdf version on ravelry.


I call this my “Sprout” colored cowl, which can be found here for purchase.



2 balls Patons Classic Wool (hand dyed) – 100% wool, 210 yards/192m, 3.5oz/100g


Size 13 (9.00mm)


19 inches in circumference, 11 inches tall


16 sts in daisy st = 4 inches


sl = slip purlwise

wyif = with yarn in front

wyib = with yarn in back

ds = daisy stitch: p3tog, leave stitches on left needle, yarn over, purl same 3 sts together again


With both yarns together (here and throughout), cast on 43 sts.

Beginning Row (RS): k2, p1, k to 4 sts from end, p1, k2

Row 1 (WS): sl1 wyif, p1, k1, *p1, ds* repeat 9 times, p1, k1, p2

Rows 2 and 4: sl1 wyib, k1, p1, k to 4 sts from end, p1, k2

Row 3: sl1 wyif, p1, k1, p2, *p1, ds* repeat 8 times, p3, k1, p2

Repeat rows 1-4 16 times for pattern dimensions.  Cast off.  Sew first and last rows together.  A good tutorial for this is the horizontal seam or the backstitch on this fantastic website.

If you would like a longer scarf, repeat rows 1-4 until desired length is achieved.  If you would like a wider scarf, increase amount of stitches by four.

This is my first written pattern so let me know if anything needs clarification!  Thanks for reading!

    Very nice – I like the smaller diameter cowls, but hadn’t envisioned a chunky one; this is cool. Also I am very interested in dyeing yarns. What did you dye it with please?
