Luxurious but Simple Cowl


Here is a gorgeous snood that a beginner can pick up straight away. It is wonderfully simple and looks amazing when on as well as being incredibly warm and snuggly. We have deliberately changed yarn when each ball runs out, this means that the colour changes are generally in the middle of the row and can be on either side of the fabric.

You can knit this flat or in the round. The only benefit from knitting in the round is that you don't have to sew it up, but you miss out on knitting every row which is a shame! (you get a neater finish knitting in the round - no bulky seam to sew!)

You will need:

4 skeins Plump, one of each colour (shown in Gooseberry Fool (A), Pistachio Ice Cream (B),

Peppermint Cream (C), Clotted Cream (D))

Needles: 12mm circular needle (at least 80cm)

Size: fits average adult head

Gauge: 10sts to 10cm on 10mm needles over stocking stitch

You'll find the kit which includes the yarn (in three different colourways) and the pattern, packaged in a kraft envelope here

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at [email protected]

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
