Help with a Cowl pattern for beginner?
Hi! I'm new to the forum, and I'm asking this because I'm dying to make this cowl from the Starz show Outlander.. it's beautiful, and I crochet, but am wanting to knit this to get the exact same effect.



I can very basically knit, can anyone tell me how this pattern has to be worked and what stitches need to be used? if I knew that much, I could watch a few youtube videos to make sure I get it right.. here it is:

from ravelry:

US*size*50*needles*(25mm).*
*
One*Size*fits*Most*
*
CO*32st.**Knit*every*row*until*piece*measures*44, *unstretched.*BO*leaving*tail*44*long*and*use*
it*to*seam*to*CO*edge.*
*
**Weave*in*ends*and*Enjoy! *

Welcome to KH. That's a lovely cowl. It's worked all in knit stitches. Knitting every row makes garter stitch and that's what makes the ridges you see.

CO 32st. Knit every row until piece measures 44, unstretched.
BO leaving tail 44 long and use it to seam to CO edge.


This is telling you to cast on 32 stitches and then knit every row until it is 44" long. You'll then bind off and seam the ends together. This is a great, easy project. The needles may be awkward because they're so big but I'm sure it will turn out great. Enjoy.

thank you for the reply!

I will have to try it out, because I can't see in my head how it makes that stitch.. hmm. I need more practice I imagine!

Also, do I knit one piece and then connect at the end or am I knitting in the round?

You're knitting a long, flat piece and then you sew the ends together. If you can cast on and do knit stitches then you can do this. You might use some other, smaller yarn and needles to get the hang of it as practice. After you get the long strip knit then we can help you with the seaming. I think you'll enjoy this. I hope we get to see a picture of it too.

It's so easy to make things harder, isn't it? I got to thinking that this is just a scarf with the ends joined. Here's a video for a garter stitch scarf.
