Lacy Lavender Cowl

This soft cowl will look great in early spring when you need that bit of extra warmth. 
I used one skein of Red Heart Soft in Lilac with size 9 circular needles. It is knit in the round for a seamless cowl. 
Co 152, join
Row 1: (p2, k2) across
Row 2: ( p2, k1, yo, k1) across
Row 3: (p2, k3) across
Row 4: (p2, k3, sl first of 3 k sts over next 2) across
Repeat rows 1-4 until scarf is desired width. 
Bo in the 2x2 ribbing of row 1. 
Fasten off and weave in ends. 
My finished cowl is 8" x 33".  I love the lacy mock cable look of this stitch. 
Xoxo, Alyssa

    1. First you will purl 2 sts. Then knit 3. Take the first of the three knit sts, and pull it over the other two, leaving those two on the needle. Hope this helps!

    2. Do you drop that knit st. then and when you do yo in row two that will add that st. back to the correct count of 152?

    3. Row 2 says p2, k1, yo, k1 as the repeating pattern. This row adds an extra stitch, and it gets dropped in row 4.

  9. Thanks for including the close up of the pattern stitch. So many patterns don't have this, which for me makes it harder to know if I am going to like it!
