Yarn Used: 70 grams of Drops Alpaca Classic (100% Alpaca)
Needles: 4.5mm circular needles
Modifications: I knitted two repeats plus another 8 rows of the chart before I started the border.
Note: I love this cowl! The candle flame pattern is very easy to understand and it’s easy to see what comes next without looking at the pattern nonstop. I knitted most of this cowl in class… it’s the perfect mindless knit if you’re tired of knitting socks in class all the time 😉
The cowl weights exactly 70grams. I started with the garter stitch border, then knitted 2 repeats + another 8 rows and ended with the regular garter stitch border. It fits perfectly. Wide and stretchy enough to pull it over my head easily yet it’s snug enough around my neck to keep me warm. It’s perfect for bike rides because you can pull it up all the way to your nose and still wear a helmet.
My friends love it and several requested one already. Guess I’ll be making a couple more of these before Christmas…
ps: no animal was harmed in the making of these pictures.
