Cabin Rose - PDF Knitting Pattern
Cabin Rose - a worsted weight tapered cowl knit with graphic elongated stitches.
My favorite style of cowl is a tapered cowl that slouches comfortably for a nice warm pile of wool around my neck, but also flares out a bit for a collar-effect. This cowl checks all those boxes - and looks lovely, to boot!

US 8 (5 mm) 16, 24 and 32” / 40, 60 and 80 cm circular needles (see Notes)

17 sts and 27 rows = 4” / 10 cm over stockinette in the round (unstretched), taken after blocking
This cowl is worked in the round from the top-down, with increases worked at even intervals to create the tapered shape.
Written instructions are provided for the entirety of the cowl. Charted instructions are provided for the Cowl Body.
Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
Note that the length of needle cable used will change as you work the cowl. The shortest, 16” / 40 cm length, was used for the cast on, the Top Band and the first section before the first set of increases is worked. The longer cables were used as the circumference of the cowl increased. Use the length that feels most comfortable.
