“Cariad” means “love” in Welsh. And I guarantee you will Love this cowl.
Anyone can make this. Seriously! Terry could knit this! And he can’t knit. At all.
Straight up and down in garter stitch makes for a super comfy cowl.
To fit one size: Adult
2 balls Stylecraft Life Chunky
9 sts / 18 rows = 10 cms (4 inches) in garter stitch
Instructions are provided in written format.
You will be knitting this with one size 10mm straight needle and one size 9mm straight needle. This is done to open up the garter stitch so it is not as compact as normal. It gives a springier feel and you can see the garter stitch pattern (the little V’s inside the bumps) a little more than usual. If you prefer, you can use a set of 10mm or a set of 9mm but measurements may differ.
Using one 10mm straight needle and one 9mm straight needle, cast on 60 sts
Work in garter stitch (knit every row) until work measures 76cms (30 inches)
To Make Up
Sew Cast on edge to cast off edge.
There are lots of different ways to do this. I prefer mattress stitch, but the cowl is so bulky, it really doesn’t matter too much how it is stitched up.
Weave in loose ends.
