Ridged Kerchief Style Cowl

This kerchief-style cowl makes a great accessory for any wardrobe.

The ridged pattern is soft, stretchy and full of texture. The twisted shell edging adds even more texture and eye catching detail.

Ridged Kerchief

The basic pattern is sized to have a 60 cm (24”) neck opening but this is fully adjustable.

Instructions are provided for varying the size – the shaping works equally well from bandana bib to full-size shawl.

YOU WILL NEED (for the size given): 400m double knit yarn, a 3.50 mm hook and a needle for neatening ends.

The sample shown was worked in Patons 100% mercerised cotton.

GAUGE: 10sts and 10 rows to 5 cm (2”) in patterned rib.

The pattern is worked flat, in rows, to produce a triangular shawl shape. This is then joined when working the neck edging. If desired, the size can be enlarged to make a shawl.

The pattern is written in UK terms with a table of US equivalents provided as applicable.
