Kraken Double-Knit Cowl

Kraken Double-Knit Cowl


It was a tough winter when this was created, with many days of -30 C with the wind chill. I needed a new cowl that could withstand the frigid temperatures, and that could also be pulled down over my shoulders to warm me up while working at my desk. This is what I came up with :) (This cowl was tested in a very cold Saskatchewan winter.)

If you haven’t tried double knitting before, this is a straightforward pattern to work on, and working the chart in the round means it;s easier than charts that have to be worked flat because you don’t have to reverse the colours in your head to account for working the wrong side.
