Fading Guernsey Cowl


A top-down bandana-style cowl knit entirely in the round, with added shawl-like shaping to create a point at the centre front. The simple bands of texture are used to showcase a slow and subtle gradient. Classic textures found in Guernsey sweater patterns make for a fun and quick knit that you’ll want to have in several colours!

Note About Substituting Yarns
This pattern used almost the entire yardage of the ball. If substituting another yarn, it should be a Worsted weight yarn that drapes well, with a suggested gauge of 20 sts = 4”/10cm. It would also look fantastic in a semi-solid or tonal yarn.
