Birchwood Cowl Pattern

This DK weight ‘Birchwood Cowl’ uses slipped stitches to create fun color combinations using three different colors. Since the colorwork is done completely in slipped stitches, there is no need for changing colors within a single round. The color changes come from switching yarn colors at the beginning of the round.

This cowl is designed to have a snug fit for an adult (24” circumference). However, I have included instructions for modifying the size if you prefer a wider cowl.

With US 5 (3.75mm) needles, 21 sts and 29 rows make a 4” square in stockinette stitch
