I’ve been a tad bit obsessed with seed stitch lately. With some lovely natural wool in my yarn stash, I knit up an extra long cowl that I can wear several ways. This is a super easy pattern that is quick to knit up.
Supplies that I used:
6 Skeins of Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica naturals in color 702
32 inch US size 17 circular knitting needle
Pattern: Double up on the yarn so that you knit with two strands of yarn from two skeins at all times to make this an extra thick knit. Cast on 155 stitches then follow the pattern knit one, purl one across the needle. Place a marker. Begin knitting in the round for the next row continuing the alternating knit one, purl one pattern. Continue until the cowl measures 10 inches, then bind off the last row in the continued knit one, purl one pattern. Use the crochet hook to weave in the loose ends.
This extra long cowl gives you many styling possiblities. A couple that I like are shown below.
