Ysolda loves using traditional stitch patterns in vibrant colours and dramatic gauges. This quick to knit cowl combines bold garter stitch rib with lace waves and a motif more commonly used as a detail in more complicated lace patterns.
Knitting in the round makes it easy to work the wave pattern without plain rows between the patterned ones. Decreases worked before the second set of waves taper the upper edge for a shape that sits comfortably over the shoulders while keeping the neck and ears cosy.
The cowl is knitted in a chunky yarn with a gauge of 13st x 18 rnds on a 7mm circular needle
A small knitting business based in Edinburgh, founded by designer Ysolda Teague, selling knitting pattern pdfs, books and a carefully selected range of yarns and accessories.
We release patterns both individually and as collections. Ysolda took up knitting while studying English Literature when her bedroom didn’t have enough room for sewing and she couldn’t sit still in lectures. An inability to follow directions combined with a compulsion to understand how things work quickly led to a rather diy approach to patterns. Over the last decade she’s pioneered new models for self publishing for both her patterns and six books and developed a reputation for clear directions and interesting construction methods.She continues to design while developing new products and managing a small team who share her nerdy excitement about all things knitting and yarn.
We will be closed Wednesday 19th,Thursday 20th and Friday 21st September to prepare for the unveiling of the new shop refurbishments. We apologise for any inconvenience. Online orders can be placed as normal. Dismiss
