Diamond Purl Cowl

4.50 USD  

This easy cowl pattern uses only knit and purl stitches to achieve a textured look. Wide ribbing and purl stitch ‘diamonds’ provide visual interest. This one skein project is quick to knit in worsted weight yarn on a circular needle. Pattern  instructions include both written and charted instructions for the pattern stitch. The Honeycomb Eyelet Cowl is a similar one-skein cowl pattern also designed in RSBS Superwash Worsted.
