Bubblegum Cowl (The Flat Version)
By Jennifer Dickerson
Earlier this week, a couple of you asked if I could make a flat version of the Bubblegum Cowl…absolutely! So if you’re of a knitter that prefers knitting things flat and seaming later, here you go, this one’s for you!
This cowl is suitable for both kids and adults alike. Knit with chunky bubblegum pink yarn, it is a super fast project to make for yourself or for a quick gift. It is perfect for those late winter and early spring days when you want a bright pop of spring color, but need to still be warm and cozy.
If you still prefer the round version, here it is too:
- 1 Skein Lion Brand Hometown Solids in Honolulu Pink–this cowl takes exactly one skein not including the gauge swatch (Note: If you choose to use some of the tweeds and prints in the Hometown line, be sure to check the yardage, some of them are only 64 yards, so you’ll need more than one skein).
- US15 Straight Needles
- Tapestry Needle for seaming and weaving in ends.
- About 12 inches tall and 26 inches circumference
- 8 stitches and 12 rows = 4 inches
Instructions for Cowl:
CO 54 sts
Row 1: *k1, p1, rpt from * to end of row
Row 2: *p1, k1, rpt from * to end of row
Row 3: Repeat Row 1
Row 4: Repeat Row 2
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: Purl
Row 7: Knit
Row 8: Purl
Repeat rows 1-8 two more times, then repeat rows 1-4 once more.
Whip stitch together, weave in any ends and you’re finished!
