Oversized Cowl knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh | Vogue Knitting Early Fall 2015

Oversized Cowl

If there’s one piece that belongs in every wardrobe – especially a knitter’s – it’s the oversized cowl. Iconic in true red, Yeoh’s is knit flat in a sumptuously textured rickrack-ribbing pattern and joined with a unique three needle bind-off technique. Knit-in I-cords border either edge. Erin, a soft, matte Columbia wool from Imperial Yarn, refines the look while offering light-weight warmth.
