Exciting stuff is shaping up for holiday pattern sales, which I’ll talk about later this week. In the meantime, I’ve been motivated to re-release independently some of the designs I’ve had published in magazines, and for which the rights have reverted to me.

Roam Cowl draped | The Knitting Vortex

First up is the Roam Cowl, featuring the reversible Roman Stripe lace stitch pattern. Using a moebius cast on, this infinity scarf is knit outward from the cast on edge, which becomes the middle of the cowl, until the outside edge is reached and bound off. Long rounds are balanced by a simple 7 row repeat that looks beautiful from both sides and lends itself to the infinity structure. Roam around anywhere in this luxury infinity cowl!

Techniques & Skills Used: moebius CO, knitting in the round, lace.
Size: 46” circumference and 10” height.
Yarn: String Theory Hand Dyed Yarn & Fiber Caper Sock (80% Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon; 400 yards/113g); 1 skein, shown in Oban.
Other Materials: US 6 (4mm) 40” circular needle or size to match gauge; Stitch markers (1); Yarn needle.
Gauge: 14 st and 35 rows/4” in Roman Stripe stitch pattern. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished cowl, and different yardage requirements.

See it on Ravelry, to read more or purchase the pattern.
