 I work a couple of days a week in a beautiful clothing boutique.  24 really cute cowls arrived and sold out in two days which inspired me to try to make one of my own.  It didn't turn out exactly like the one in the shop, however, I was pretty pleased with the results.  And I absolutely love the stitch.  (Although, I still don't know the name of it.)
I put it in a pdf file so that you can print it.  Check above under "simple knitting patterns".  And also, here are the simple directions.  (Check your stash for a bulky yarn!)  If you have any problems with the pattern, I put together a youtube video to help!  Click here!

Bella

Materials:
2 skeins Wool of the Andes, Bulky (137 yards each.  This is wallaby.)
Size 13 needles
Crochet hook

Pattern:
Cast on 80 stitches loosely.

Row 1 :: *k2tog, yo 2x, k2tog repeat from * to end
Row 2 ::  *p1, (k1,p1) into yo, p1 repeat from * to end
Row 3 ::  k2 *sl 1, k1, psso, yo 2x, sl 1, k1, psso  repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2
Row 4 ::  p2 *p1 (k1, p1) into yo, p1  repeat from * to last 2 sts, p2

Repeat these 4 rows until piece measures approximately 14 inches ending with row 4 of pattern repeat.  Bind off loosely.
Using extra yarn cut approximately 80 pieces of yarn measuring 11" each. Using a crochet hook, attach fringe along cast on and bind off edges. (As much or as little fringe as you'd like.)  Sew together along side edge.

If you get knitting you can have this finished in no time for gift giving!
(Feel free to email me with any questions.)

  1. Bully cowls always have that chic look. Ya can't go wrong. And you go on making your own instead of stashing away one at your work.

  4. i steer away from bulky yarns.....except for cowls. they really make a fashion statement, I think...and yours is great! really lovely.

  5. I'm wondering...how would the pattern look in a smaller yarn? I have medium length hair and bulky knits make it stick out in the back in a quirky, unbecoming way! Love the pattern, so after Christmas when I have more time I may try it in a smaller yarn.

  9. I agree with Kepanie, bulky always looks good. And since I'm constantly buying the bulk and never knitting it, this might be just what my stash needs!

    I also would like to know if this could be done I the round?
    I am wondering if the stitches as written would change if doneDI on a circular needle. Has anyone tried this version? Thank you.

    I love this- thank you for sharing, i am a beginner and have worked out most stitches with a little help from youtube but i am still stumped by one thing- the parenthesis. Google tells me these are usually used when multiplying the contents of the brackets eg (k1, p1) x 2. I get that. But here there is no multiplier...?
    Could you please explain the brackets?
    Thank you so much!
