This beautiful double wrap cowl is knit from end to end using aran weight yarn and 5.00 mm needles. Pattern is a simple wide rib with a knit/purl border on one side and narrow border on the other. Just knit to desired length. Pictured cowl is 12 inches wide by 58 inches around and knit with 500 meters of Galway Highland Heathers in teal (colour 2527). For best results, use a yarn with good stitch definition. You will need to block your knitting to open up the panels. Enjoy!

5.00 mm needles

20 stitches = 4″ across

approximately 12″ x 58″ around after blocking
