This is a simple but nice set of hat and cowl, perfect for those cold days we have in wintertime in Norway =)
4,5 mm/ size 7 needles, both 40 cm/ 16 inch circular and dpns.
250 grams of yarn. I used the Peruvian Highland Wool from Filcolana. However, the amount of yarn depends on how big you want both the hat and cowl.
The gauge of my yarn was 18 sts on 10 cm, but the gauge isn't critical for the outcome. You simply add or subtract repeats of the pattern to get the size you want.
CO - cast on
k - knit
p - purl
ktbl - knit through back loop
k2tog - knit 2 together
k2tog tbl - knit 2 together through the back loop
rnd - round
CO 88 sts and knit 8 rnd of k2 p2.
Increase 20 sts on the next round, 108 sts in total.
K1tbl, k5 - continue through round
K1tbl, p5 - continue through round
Keep working in this pattern until you have 22 ridges or the size you want.
Start the decreases like this:
K1tbl, k2, k2tog, k1 - repeat through round. 90 sts left.
Keep in pattern for 5 rounds, but keep in mind that there's 4 sts between the k1tbl's.
K1tbl, k1, k2tog, k1 - repeat through round. 72 sts left
Keep in pattern for 5 rounds, but keep in mind that there's 3 sts between the k1tbl's.
K1tbl, k2tog, k1 - repeat through round. 54 sts left.
Keep in pattern for 5 rounds, but keep in mind that there's 2 sts between the k1tbl's.
K1tbl, k2tog - repeat through round. 36 sts left.
K1tbl, p1, - repeat through round.
K2tog tbl - 18 sts left.
K1tbl - repeat through round.
K2tog tbl - repeat through round. 9 sts left.
Pull the yarn through the remaining sts and fasten off.
CO 96 sts and knit pattern as for hat until you have the size you want. Bind off loosely to get a loose edge so you can det it over your head =) A tip is to use a larger needle when you bind off.
Now you're all done! I would like to see your finished results!
