Scarf Cowl Knitting Pattern

My favorite Cowl Knitting pattern is born by accident. I got the best present of my mother - very soft mohair yarn. I promised myself to make something unique and I did.
Cowl knitting pattern looks complicated, but it's very easy to make.  You need to know just 2 simple stitches: knit and purl.

I feel wonderful, when people like what I do. Greatest comments about this cowl:
  •  It's FABULOUS! By far the best cowl I've seen. (Maria N.)
  • Certainly is a striking cowl. Definitely a wardrobe enhancer. Can't wait to start mine. (Linda K.)
  • Unique and gorgeous! (Gloria M.)
  • Beautiful.....such a cool design. Right on !!! : ) (Maura S. K.)

Stylish Headband Knitting Pattern


I'm so happy to share with you my free 'Stylish Headband' knitting pattern. It's really easy to make. I spend one day making this headband. You can simply adjust the lenght by knitting more rows.

I'm very pleased with review from http://www.allfreeknitting.com :


''If you're looking for a stylish, contemporary look for any occasion, look not further than this Fashionably Twisted Knit Headband. Free knitting patterns just don't come this fashionable. Most importantly, this knit headband pattern takes only one skein of yarn, which is less than most knitting patterns. Free and cheap, what more could you want? It even features glamorous gem-like buttons as a lovely accent. It's so pretty, even your stubborn teen will wear it. Follow these easy instructions to learn how to knit a headband you'll wear time and time again.''

Stylish headband Knitting Pattern
What will you need:
1 ball yarn DK (8 ply) (50 g.), 113 metres. White.
Knitting Needles:  4 mm [US 6].
Tension Gauge: 22 st = 10 cm [4’’], 30 rows 10 cm [4’’]

Headband measurement:
Length - 46 cm /18’’, 

Let’s start

Cast on 29 sts on needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work PATTERN  back and forth on needle - see explanation below. Bind off when piece measures approx 18“. 



RS – Right side
WS – Wrong side

Row 1 (= RS):
*K into back loop of 2nd st on left needle, then K into 1st st on left needle, then drop these 2 sts from left needle,  repeat from *-* across until 1 sts rem on row, K1.

Row 2  (= WS): *P into front loop of 2nd st on left needle, then P into 1st st on left needle, then drop these 2 sts from from left needle, repeat from *-* across until 1 sts rem on row, P1.

Those two rows creates Basket weave pattern.

Repeat those 2 rows until 14 cm / 5.5“. Last row – back side.

Then you need to devide 29 sts into 3 parts. First  - 11 sts., second – 7 sts.,  third – 11 sts. Knit each part separetely 12 rows , the same pattern (basket weave) for first and third.

Pattern for middle stripe: 
Row 1 (= RS): K1, K into back loop of 2nd st on left needle, then K into 1st st on left needle, then drop these 2 sts from left needle, repeat from *-*.
Row 2 (= WS): P 1, *P into front loop of 2nd st on left needle, then P into 1st st on left needle, then drop these 2 sts from from left needle, repeat from *-*. 


Twist stripes as shown in the picture.  Then knit all together 8 rows. (The same basket wave stitch)
 Start in right side.

Repeat this section again: devide 29 sts into 3 parts. First -  11 sts., second – 7 sts.,  third – 11 sts. Knit each separetely 12 rows, the same pattern for first and third (basket weave), middle stripe is different (as before, look above: 'Pattern for middle stripe'). Twist stripes as before.

Knit the same pattern (basket weave) when piece measures approx 18“.  Sew the ends together. Sew buttons. All done. Happy wearing!!!
