Finally, A Knit Project I Will Be Proud Of! Accordion Cowl in Blue


Yay!  I love it!  It seems to be taking forever (only because I seem to always have at least 4 different projects going at once), and it is still a work-in-progress.  But, I love it and need to show it off!  I have worked it in a double strand of Caron Simply Soft.  One in Paints, the other in a solid blue.  

 

To begin, I used a crochet chain, slip stitched this around, then picked up and knit from there. I like it!

Has anyone noticed??? This seems to be my very favorite yarn. I have a huge stash.

A couple more repetitions and she’s done. 😀 This is shown stretched out.  When worn, it will fold over and over on itself.

Here is the photo from the blog post where I found this fabulous pattern. Click to go there for this super simple pattern.

Well, there you have it.  Maybe I will even model it myself when it is finished.  I am definitely keeping this one for myself.  😀

    Could you please post the pattern. I can’t find it. Thanks. I want to make it now for my sister. I love it

    • Hey Umma…thanks so much for commenting. Unfortunately, this pattern is no longer available. REALLY SAD! Although, I think it would be easily replicated. If you have knit cowls before, you might have an idea of how many stitches to cast on with your recommended needles and yarn. Then, it is simply a repeat of knit rows (say, 10 for example) and purl rows, until your desired length. I sure hope this helps!
