Chilly days and nights call for a stylish accessory you can keep in your handbag or the living room to throw on when the weather calls for it. The Pekoe cowl is small enough to tuck in a purse, but will provide the warmth you need while still keeping your style cool. Knit flat in our Dona yarn and grafted together for an ‘invisible’ finish, the stitch definition in this gently pointed-front cowl adds extra detail to your outfit of the day.

Save time check your gauge.
This pattern is worked flat in one piece beginning with a provisional cast on. After working an even section, stitches are gradually increased and then decreased to create a point at the center-front of the cowl. Then, another even section is worked. Kitchener stitch is used to join the cast-on and final ends together, creating a seamless loop.
Please note that this cowl weighs 148 grams and uses nearly all of three balls of yarn. Accurate gauge is crucial to ensure you do not run out of yarn. After obtaining gauge, unravel your swatch and use it for the cowl. If you are worried about running out of yarn you may wish to purchase an additional ball.
The Pekoe Cowl is available as part of e-book Elegant Ease, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
