I'm thrilled to introduce a new design for you guys! With Fall just around the corner, you need a sophisticated, pretty, and SIMPLE cowl design for your knitwear wardrobe. September answers each of those needs.
I had originally envisioned the piece knit with a bulky yarn, but after swatching for a bit, I discovered that the lighter DK weight gave it a much lighter feel and was gentler on the body.
Flecked with easy cables for a lovely texture and beautiful style, this cowl is suitable for just about all types of yarn. Because it is worked in the round, it is quick to knit! The pattern includes both charted and written instructions, so there isn't any guessing - a great beginner introduction to cables, yet fun enough for the intermediate knitter.
Here's the pertinent data:
32 ¼” / 81.25 cm cirfumference, 18” / 45.75 cm length

21 sts and 30 rows = 4” / 10 cm in September Stitch. While gauge is not critical to the finished piece, it does affect the amount of yarn used. Adjust this in your planning.
I hope you enjoy this little piece. AND! Because I am so deeply grateful for your support, you can purchase the cowl for a limited time price of .99 cents (regular price is $2.99). No coupon is needed; the discount is taken off in your cart. The sale price is only good until Sept 3rd, so buy before then! Thank you so much!
