by - April 08, 2018


Good day, fellow crafters!

Are you looking for a lovely accessory for the autumn and winter seasons?  If so, try out Kana the Wanderer's Cowl!  This original design of mine is perfect for exploring and enjoying the changing seasons outdoors! 

This cowl is soft and has a wonderful drape. It isn’t too heavy nor light, and it isn’t too tight nor loose.  It takes up two regular skeins of worsted-weight yarn.  (I recommend Lionbrand's Heartland yarn for its beautiful colors!)

Without further ado, I present to you: Kana the Wanderer's Cowl!

  1. How do you join the round with blo/flo? Do I sl st the first dc with blo/flo only?

    1. Hi Amy! You can either join the round with blo/flo (following how the other stitches in the row are done) by doing a sl st into the first dc's back or front loop, OR you may do a regular join through both loops. I would recommend sticking with one or the other, though, because it would look best if your piece is consistent. I hope this helps!
