The Simpson Cowl, named for viol-player and composer Christopher Simpson, is a short cowl worked in the round featuring an all-over pattern of intertwining cable motifs. It’s part of the Twisted Strings collection - five accessory patterns inspired by the decorative tracery found on Baroque string instruments.
Skills and techniques include knitting in the round, and working 1-over-1 cables which can be knit without a cable needle (instructions for my favourite twist method are included).
Materials Needed: 1 skein of Malabrigo Washted (100% superwash merino wool; 210yds/192m per 100g skein), or 201yds/184m of worsted-weight yarn. Sample colourway: ‘Pearl’. Note: if you are a loose knitter you may need to have an extra skein on hand. You will also need a cable needle (optional), a stitch marker, and a needle for weaving in the ends.
Charts and written instructions are both provided in full.
