Solace garter stitch cowl knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh

Solace

Generous length, rhythmic stripes and soothing garter stitch add up to a cowl that’s relaxing to knit and cozy to wear – the ultimate comfort knit. Choose high contrast colours for impact, or toning shades for an even more soothing effect.

The cowl is worked flat (avoiding purling and the end-of-round colour jog), then seamed; using the edge-to-edge seam (instructions included) ensures an invisible join. Matching cast-on and bind-off techniques provide a perfect finish.
