This textured cowl, Mara, is a stunning piece worked in beautiful Truva, a cashmere cotton blend that is softer than soft. The pattern looks complicated, but it's just knits and purls. A terrific project for adventurous beginners and experienced knitters alike. You'll enjoy the process and have a stunning three-season accessory. It would also be a lovely gift for a special someone on your holiday list.
Worked in the round at a gauge of 21 stitches per 4 inches over textured pattern on US 6 (4.0mm) or sized needed to obtain gauge. Of course, this is a cowl, so precise gauge is not crucial.
