|Easy Eyelet Cowl|
This does not change whether it is Summer or Winter and my Mum has often mentioned that she would like a warm hat and scarf to go walking in - for the cooler mornings of course.
Well, recently, it was her birthday and I knitted her a matching set. The only problem is, it's the middle of summer. We are expecting 40C in 2 days so I am afraid, she may have to wait a few months until she can wear them.
Both the patterns are super easy (and quick .. ). I chose to knit the set in 8ply 'Denim' by Bendigo Woollen Mills. The wool already has a 'lived-in' look. Perfect for casual, everyday wear. This set is meant to be something that you throw on every morning and I wanted a very durable wool.
Mothers' day isn't far away so I shall save the gorgeous lacey knits until then.
Using 4.5mm circulars, cast on 120 stitches.
11th row: Purl
12th row: YO, K2tog to the end of the row.
These 12 rows form the pattern. Knit another 6 repeats.
After the final 12th row, knit the next row and then bind off. This leaves an eyelet edging at the top which looks very sweet.
Cast on 90 stitches.
Knit 10 rows plain.
11th row: Purl
12th row: YO, K2tog to end.
Repeat these 12 rows twice more before you start the decreasing.
1st decreasing row: Knit 8, K2Tog. Rpt to end of row
3rd: Knit 7, K2tog. Rpt to end of row
5th: Knit 6, K2tog. Rpt to end of row
7th: Knit 5, K2tog. Rpt to end of row
9th: Knit 4, K2tog. Rpt to end of row
11th: Knit 3, K2tog. Rpt to end of row
13th: Knit 2, K2tog. Rpt to end of row
15th: Knit 1, K2tog. Rpt to end of row
17th: K2tog to end of row
Leaving a tail of yarn and using a yarn needle, thread the last remaining stitches and pull firmly and secure. Weave in any threads and you are ready to go walking in those cold, misty mornings.
