Introducing the Kristine Cowl pattern

Yesterday I  released and give you the Kristine ear warmer patterns. Today’s cowl matches them perfectly and so far completes the ‘set’. Although I am thinking that I may need to come up with some fingerless gloves or mittens or something to go with them!

What do you think of them together? Do they need the wristlets?

And let me tell you that this cowl so cozy. It really is the perfect pattern to make and gift this holiday season. And it looks great regardless of your yarn choice or colour.

Kristine Cowl Pattern Notes:

  • Written in US terms.
  • Ch1 stitches at the beginning do not count as a st unless otherwise stated.

  • To alter the circumference of the cowl make sure you have an even number of stitches at the end of round 1.



Special Stitches:

To make your Kristine ear warmer in either version you will need to know the following stitches:


Here is our right handed tutorial:

You can find our left handed tutorial here. 

Camel Stitch (also known as the third loop hdc):

To do this stitch:

YO, insert hook into the THIRD loop of the HDC from the previous row (this will be a horizontal bar below the two loops you normally work into. If working in the round, it will be on the INSIDE of your work). Pull up a loop, YO and pull thru all 3 loops on your hook.

You can find our right handed video tutorial on how to do this here :
