Snowy Woods Cowl

The Snowy Woods Cowl is inspired by Robert Frost’s poem, “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening.” This piece is worked in the round, for ease in working the textured trees which always face you as you knit. This cowl was designed for Woolgirl’s Poet’s Club, and is an exclusive for the club until late July 2014.

The yarn is DK 100% Superwash Merino Wool from Oink Pigments in the Robert Frost Colorway. I treated it as a worsted, on US 8 needles, and it knit up soft and squishy.

I’ll update this page in late July with purchase information.

Errata for the Woolgirl published version:

Two purl stitches are erroneously marked as knit stitches on the chart. Row 18 stitch 39, and round 30 stitch 56 should be purled, not knit. The written instructions for these rounds should be:

Round 18: p6, k2, p2, k6, p4, k6, p2, k2, p9, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p6, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p3
Round 30: p2, k1 tbl, p5, k4, p4, k4, p4, k4, p5, k1 tbl, p16, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p3

Sorry for the inconvenience.
