Linen eyelet cowl pattern
Here is a pattern for a cowl made out of eco-stitch 100% linen DK/light worsted weight.
It took just one 100g hank to make (Seaspray colour way)
Finished circumference 74cm, height 19cm (measurements after washing).
The finished result is lovely and soft.
These instructions are for knitting backwards and forwards, not in the round. You can knit in the round if you prefer not to join the seam at the end.
Cast on 129 stitches with size 3.75mm needles.
Knit 3 rows.
Start Eyelet pattern (6 rows):
1)*k1, yo, sl1 k psso, k3, k2tog, yo,* Repeat between* along row until last stitch, k1
3)k2, *yo, sl1 k psso, k1, k2tog, yo, k3* Repeat between * until last 7 stitches: yo, s1 k psso, k1, k2tog, yo, k2

Knit 4 rows (for ridge)
Repeat 6 rows of Eyelet pattern.
Knit 4 rows for ridge.
Repeat eyelet pattern and ridge 2 more times.
Cast off loosely.
Sew seam together.
Each pattern repeat is 8 stitches. If you don't want the cowl to be as long, you can drop a couple of pattern repeats of 8 stitches each, so casting on only 121, 113 or 105 stitches. But remember to make it big enough to get it over your head!
