The Mercy Bay Cowl began with the interesting stitch pattern. I was playing around on the needles and really liked it. I have been having a little love affair with Manos Silk Blend yarn lately and still had a couple of skeins of this gorgeous turquoise blue that I hadn’t used yet.
The cowl is knit sideways so easily adjusts in length by changing the stitch count. The stitch pattern repeat is 10 stitches, so any number divisible by ten may be cast on for your own custom length cowl.
The reverse side in not identical to the right side, but very close, and interesting, kind of like fraternal twins. Below, the same length looped around the twice for a cosy neck warmer.
For the size shown here you will need 2 skeins of Manos Silk Blend, or 300 yards of your favourite DK weight yarn. Malabrigo Silky Merino is another favourite of mine that would be equally beautiful for the cowl.
Thanks, Elizabeth, for being such a great knitwear model!
