Barton Springs Cowl

$6

The pattern is written in three different sizes. I worked the sample in size “extra loose,” which has the most versatility in wear because you can wear in in a single loop, a double loop, with one loop threaded into the other, folded, bunched or however you like to style your cowls.

Working the stitches in this pattern can be a little fiddly, due to all the twisted stitches, but with some patience, you will get fantastic results. I personally don’t mind twisted stitches, especially when I know the kind of results I’ll get from it.

Product Description

 

A cozy fluffy cowl is my go-to accessory for almost any weather. When I design accessories like shawls and cowls, I always try to keep the reversibility of such garments in mind. For Barton Springs, I designed a well-defined reversible stitch pattern so that it looks great no matter how you style your cowl. There is no real “wrong side.”" Twisted stitches in the pattern allow stitches to really stand out and pop, particularly when worked in a looser gauge, because the twists lock the stitches in place after stretching and blocking, showing off the ribbed columns.
