Frances cowl is an over-sized, full cowl that is cozy to wear and easy to knit up quickly. It uses less than 300 yards of bulky-weight yarn, features a little shaping (created by changing needle size) and an easy stitch pattern that is perfect for a little mindless knitting!
I used 3 skeins of Cascade’s Baby Alpaca Chunky – a perfect yarn for this kind of design because of the wonderful drape that alpaca has (and how soft it is next to the skin too!).
Pattern Cost: $4.00
Gauge: 13 sts & 24 rws = 1″ in St st
Yarn: Approx 282 yds of bulky weight yarn, shown in Baby Alpaca Chunky by Cascade (100% baby alpaca; 100g = 108 yds), 3 skeins.
