Califon Cowl

Knitting pattern by Lelah Olender. Ravel it: Califon Cowl

This open bubble stitch pattern was adapted for use in the round from Barbara G. Walker’s A Second Treasure of Knitting Patterns. The highly textured fabric is perfect for showing off almost-bulky weight handspun yarn, and will only take an hour or two to make.

YARN: The Spun Monkey’s Monkey Twists (plied yarn) in That Seventies Upholstery – One Skein. Purchased from Purl Jam, in Califon, NJ.

NEEDLES: Size 11-40” circulars. This particular cowl was knitted using The Magic Loop method, but you could use 12” circulars or DPNs, and it would work just as well.

GAUGE: 3.5 stitches per inch.

FINISHED SIZE: Measured flat: 7” x 10.5”

DIRECTIONS: Using the long tail cast on, CO 70 sts.

Row 1: knit

Row 2: purl

Row 3: knit

Rows 4-6: knit

Row 7: *(k5, turn, p5, turn) 3 times, k10; rep from * (a total of seven repeats).

Rows 8-10: knit

Row 11: k5, *(k5, turn, p5, turn) 3 times; rep from *, k5.

Repeat rows 4-11 twice, then knit rows 4-7 once.

Purl a row, then knit a row, and bind off.
