This stitch patter for the gorgeous Elderwood Breeze Cowl pattern reminds me of taking a stroll in the woods near my home. The trees are ancient and seem to interweave with each other in an interesting way. Sometimes you can see through them, and sometimes they are too densely packed together.
The cowl is knitted as a double fabric in the round. It has the stitch effect on the front and plain stocking stitch on the back. It can be made narrower or longer to suit the wearer’s personal preference. Once the pattern is established this is a great project for in front of the TV. It uses a provisional cast on and then the two ends are Kitchenered together.
The cowl was knitted in Stylecraft Bellissima (100% acrylic) in colourway Rio Red 3932. It comes in small, medium and large width.

Thank you to my tech editor – Tabitha Thomas Studios and my test knitters.
The Elderwood Breeze Cowl pattern is knitted with dk weight yarn. You could substitute any soft dk weight yarn. I I used mm needles but if you wanted a drapier cowl, you could go up to a larger needle size. You might use more yarn, so allow for that when choosing your colours.add to cart show cart

Elderwood Breeze Cowl Pattern Gallery
As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear. In this case, it’s for me and I saw this yarn and felt it was perfect for the hat and cowl for the Elderwood design, it’s machine wash, soft and a stunning colour.
