My best selling pattern! Is it a cowl? Is it a capelet? It’s a cowlet! This versatile piece can be worn pulled down over the shoulders as a light capelet, or loosely around the neck as a cowl. Knit in fingering weight yarn at a loose gauge, it’s the perfect airy spring layer.
Worked from the bottom up in the round, it requires no seaming. A solid or tonal color will play nicely with the stitch patterns—try one of the new gradient yarns or use up leftovers and switch colors between sections for a unique look.
Note: a tutorial on the edging for this pattern is available on the TUTORIALS page!

Note: the larger circumference is intended for individuals with a larger bust size who wish to wear this piece as a capelet; if intended to be worn solely around the neck as a cowl, the smaller circumference is recommended.
