Item details

THIS LISTING IS FOR A .PDF KNITTING PATTERN ONLY! This personal-use handknitting pattern .PDF is instantly downloadable after purchase, and will help you knit your very own version of the Winter Folk cowl.

This written pattern includes a schematic and information to help you knit either the lightweight version (shown), or the worsted one.

The functional, straightforward lace of this cowl has a great folk look. It's more geometric than frilly or undulating, so it makes a nice project for anyone who likes the intricacy of knitting lace, but doesn't necessarily care for a lot of feminine lace styles in their wardrobe.

(Also, if you are not a knitter, or don't knit, or don't want to knit this but really, really want one, you can find most of the samples in my shop! And if you'd like me to make you another, contact me! I rarely take custom orders, but as time and interest allow, I am into it.)

You'll need:
-about 335 yards of fingering-weight yarn (sample is shown in Malabrigo Mechita: Sandbank colorway)
-16" circular knitting needle in size needed to knit at gauge (most knitters will need to start swatching around a US5/3.75mm; the pattern suggests a very broad range of needle sizes because the variation in tension among individual knitters is very broad.)
-tapestry needle
-stitch markers

Gauge for the lightweight version is 16 sts./29 rows over 4” in stockinette stitch.

This pattern has been professionally tech edited and knit by many independent knitters. It was first released in July 2016.

Thanks for looking!

Returns & exchanges

I strive to make excellent garments, accessories, and yarns, taking great care in the process of each. Since my work is so oriented to such personal close-contact wear and most things like hats, scarves, and other similar items aren't returnable, sales are final.

Additional policies

awkward's goods are made in and shipped from a smoke-free environment. But there is totally a dog.

From time to time, I take on very limited numbers of custom projects. Accurate custom measurements are the absolute responsibility of the client, so please double check! Turn around times vary, but are generally at least 4-5 weeks. Summer's a great time to order winter woolens made just for you!
