Knitted Cowl

Creating an elegant cowl can be simple in knitting!

On a circular needle, cast on an uneven number of stitches. For this cowl I cast on 221 stitches. Knit moss stitch (1 knit, 1 purl) until you have the desired length of the cowl.

Cast off in moss stitch. Note: when casting off it is important to finish the stitch either in knit or purl, then cast off and only then to bring you yarn over.

For this particular cowl, I used a lace weight 100% merino yarn.

It is really as simple as that!

Tunisian Crochet Cowl

Creating an elegant cowl in tunisian crochet can be just as simple!

With a number 6 tunisian crochet needle and sock weight variegated yarn, I made 70 chains to start off with.

Crochet 4 rows of Tunisian Knit stitch, and 2 rows of Tunisian Cross Stitch.

Repeat these rows until your scarf or cowl is long enough.

End off and Voila! It is really as simple as that!
