Sleeved Cowl


Cozy up by the fire with your knitting! Rhythmic stitches playfully dance to the sparks and tune of the crackling fire in this sleeved cowl design. As a bonus, this long design also serves as a cozy blanket while you knit. Once complete fear no winter weather, in (pattern name) you’re free to romp and roam in the deepest snow. The built-in cowl converts to a head covering when Jack Frost blasts his worst. Or wear it as a cowl for a fashion-forward look.


The tech edited pattern is fully written with a schematic.  A "how-to" for the Alternating Cable Cast On in 1x1 rib and quick explanation of the cuffs will be shared from You Tube upon request.

Requirements from the tester

I'm looking for testers to knit in a variety of yarn fiber options.  If someone is willing to start at the right sleeve, that would be great as my release date is fixed.  Please notify me of any mistakes that I and my TE missed.  I LOVE my pattern name (which you'll see when you receive the pattern) and it is currently "available" so please restrain from using it in your teaser pics until after the pattern release.  Thank you ;-).  

Rewards from the designer

After publication, testers who finish and link their projects to Ravelry with social media sharable photos will receive my gratitude, the finalized pattern, as well as their pick of 1 pattern from my Ravelry shop!  


The designer has created the following milestones, in order to keep track of progress during the test knit. By marking off each milestone as you complete it, you can easily keep the designer up to date with your progress.
