Free Pattern: Danube Cowl


It's up! I got over myself, and chose a palindromic pseudonym because palindromes are fun. You can now download the Danube Cowl pattern for free! Hurray! I hope you like it.


Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, 100g / 270 m skein
Needles: 4.5 mm / US7

This cabled cowl is knitted flat with a provisional cast-on. The ends are grafted to form a long loop suitable for wrapping around the neck. Knit in a wool-silk blend, this cowl is warm, cozy, and super soft.

Cabling without a needle makes this project go faster. I like to use this method as described by Grumperina.

See this tutorial for one way to graft the loop together in pattern.

Thanks to Novanz, Smokeandashes, and ZooGirl for testing. Let me know if you find any more errors/wrong things.

  1. I'm so happy you found the PERFECT solution! And that's a lovely cowl you designed - you must be so proud of yourself :)

  2. Thanks for sharing this!

  3. So beautiful! It is very pretty.

  4. Attempting this cool pattern but have one question. When the directions tell me to knit the knits and purl the purls, will that be the knits and purls from the RS which are purls and knits on the WS (I think)?
