Happy Hump Day!
Wednesday is finally here. We've been working so hard at creating new colorways for the fall season that I thought it would be a great time to share another recipe I've been "cooking" up. Fall is quickly approaching, so it's a great time to cast on a cowl to keep your neck warm during the cold months.
1 skein of Rita Mae Yarns "Dahlia Worsted" Base
Size US 8 needles
YO - yarn over
SL1 - Slip one stitch purl-wise
K1 - Knit one stitch
Brk 1: Brioche knit one stitch by knitting the yo&purl stitches together from the previous row.
For this stitch you must know how to do the following stitches: cast on (your preferred method, I personally like the long-tail cast-on), knit stitch, purl stitch, and yarn over.
This Cowl is worked flat and joined together after you have bound off.
Recipe Starts Here
Cast on 30 stitches
Start Row: *YO, SL1, K1* Repeat * to the end of the row ending the row with a K1.
Row 1: *YO, SL1, Brk1* Repeat * to the end of the row ending the row with a Brk1
Repeat Row 1 until length desired. You can knit it as short or as long as you'd like!
**Please watch the videos posted below to help you with the stitch. I have a video for both right handed AND left handed knitters!
Once you've reached your desired length, bind off using a stretchy bind off. My favorite is the Jenny's Stretchy Bind-Off. You can find a tutorial for this bind-off here.
After you've bound off, do not cut your yarn right away. Leave about an arm's length of yarn for seaming the 2 ends together. To learn how to seam your cast-on and bind-off edges together, please watch this video.
