Everybody needs a big cowl to snuggle up in around this time of year, right? This one's mine. I saw a stylish-looking girl in downtown Beijing wearing a similar one, and couldn't resist coming up with a cowl of my own inspired by it. Jaymie is knit in a super-stretchy puffed rib stitch, which looks totally different depending on which side you decide is right-side-out, and whether or not you stretch it out flat while blocking. It's got lots of great texture, and holds in warmth like a dream! I love the way the stitch pattern looks when the ribs run horizontally, but if you'd rather knit the cowl vertically in the round that's pretty too!
Needle size: US 7, two straights
Yarn: Any nice worsted weight, like Quince & Co Lark!
Optional: Contrasting colors for stripes
Gauge is not important for this pattern.
I'm really excited to see how it works up in different colors!
