Offset Cowl - Free Knit Pattern

Gauge is not too essential for this project, what matters most is getting a fabric you like. This is a very easy pattern to memorize and can be made to any length. I made the cowl shown with Merino Silk (70%/30%) by Cherry Tree Hill Yarn in the 'Summer's End' colorway and used a full skein( 225 yards/ 100 grams). Flat dimensions are as follows(after being seamed together and blocked): 24" x 8".
























Materials:
DK weight yarn  
4.5 mm needles (or needles needed to get gauge)
2 stitch markers
Tapestry needle to seam and weave in ends

Stitches Used:
Cast on
Knit
Purl
Yarn Over - YO
Knit two together - K2tog
Cast off

Gauge:
1" = 3.5 stitches in stockinette stitch

Notes:
This project is worked back and forth flat, and is seamed together once complete.
All wrong side rows(even rows) are the same throughout the pattern.


Cowl:
Cast on 30
Row 1- Knit 4, place marker(PM), knit to last 4 stitches, PM, knit to end of row
Row 2- Knit to marker. Purl to marker. Knit to end of row
Row 3- Knit to marker [Knit 3, YO, K2tog] x4 times total. Knit to end of row
Row 4- Repeat row 2 for every wrong side row through the rest of the pattern
Row 5- Knit all stitches
Row 7- Repeat row 2
Row 8- Knit to marker [YO, K2tog, knit 3] x4 times total. YO, K2tog, knit to end of row
Row 9- Repeat row 2
Row 10- Knit all stitches
Row 11- Repeat row 2
Repeat row 3-11 until desired length; leave tail long enough to seam together. Bind off.

Finishing:
Block if desired before or after seaming. Seam together.
