Misty Morning Cowl

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Angora Merino


16 sts + 25 rnds = about 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


K2, p2 Rib (worked in the rnd, multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K2, p2; rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 for K2, p2 Rib.


Cowl is worked in one piece, in the round.

The stitch pattern on Rnds 10 and 11 will not create a k2, p2 rib, but rather a band of purl sts on a St st background.

Cast on 112 sts. Place marker for beginning of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Work in K2, p2 Rib for 5 rnds.
Rnds 1-9: Knit.
Rnd 10: *K2, p2; rep from * around.
Rnd 11:*P2, k2; rep from * around.

Rep Rnds 1-11 eight more times, then Rnds 1-9 once more, then work in K2, p2 Rib for 5 rnds.
Bind off.

Weave in ends.

Misty Morning Cowl Reviewed by Martha Steele on 2015-10-15 *****
Lovely pattern and yarn! Pattern is easy but interesting. Stylish finished product. Unfortunate so many have unfairly given this a low rating over photography. If you read the pattern, you'll see it is a tube (like the majority of cowl patterns).

This would work with any yarn, and any needle. Give it a try!
