Just Because Cowl

I wanted to knit a cowl. I wanted to use up some old boucle yarn. I didn't want it to take forever. Hence the Just Because Cowl was born.

Yarn: Any art yarn or boucle. I used Bernat Soft Boucle, about 1/2-2/3 of the large skein
Needles: Size 17 circs
Guage: not really important but I got 6 stitches and 15 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

CO 100 stitches and join in the round

Rounds 1-3: Knit
Round 4: (K1, YO, K2tog) around
Round 5: Knit
Round 6: Purl
Round 7: Knit
Round 8: (YO, K2tog) around
Round 9-20: Knit
Round 21: (YO, K2tog) around
Round 22: Knit
Round 23: Purl
Round 24: Knit
Round 25: (k1, YO, K2tog) around
Rounds 26-28: Knit
Bind off all stitches loosely and weave in ends.

My cowl ended up 9 inches wide and long enough to wrap up to 3 times comfortably.

Happy Knitting!!

I am an avid knitter working in a fabric and yarn store. With your permission I would like to use your pattern to make a cowl out of a new yarn (Blickfang) we just received that no one knows what to do with. I won't be reproducing your pattern just directing them to your pattern's Ravelry page. Please PM me as Carminerose
