This is probably the coolest accessory I’ve designed, and I might like it even more than the shawl it was inspired by, the Hipster Shawl…
Practical, fuss free, this cowl goes with everything in my wardrobe. And yes, I do feel cool wearing it… even if not exactly ‘hipster’.
As any hipster would, I chose an ethical and sustainable yarn with a great story… And as if their story wasn’t amazing enough, the fiber is unbelievably soft and glorious against my skin.
14½ inches (36 cm) wide and 56 inches (140 cm) long, made into a loop.
Yarn: 5 skeins of Baby Yak Medium by Myak (100% yak; 125 yards 114m/50g) or approx. 560 yards (513m) of light worsted or DK weight yarn. Shown in colorway Desert.
Needles: US 8 (5 mm) needles.
Other notions: Crochet hook, tapestry needle, a split ring st marker, blocking pins or wires.
16 st and 30 rows to 4” (10cm) in garter st on US 8 (5 mm) needles after blocking.
Gauge is not crucial for this project. However, changes might result in a different yardage requirement.
