Heart2Heart Knitting Knit- Anemone Cowl
Anemone Cowl by Kelli Slack
When I first saw this stitch I knew I wanted to incorporate it into a fun cowl and it took a few tries, but I finally hit upon the right combination of color, needle, and shaping. This cowl is knit in one “pattern cluster” throughout, but with an increase on one side and a decrease on the other to make the work lean or bias. With a 4 stitch pattern repeat, you can easily make this cowl wider and since it is knit flat and then seamed, making it longer is your choice too!
Don’t like a cowl? If you can handle a biased edge on the ends, you can leave it flat and have a scarf instead.
