Speedy, Slip Stitch Doing Great Cowl by Emma Sadler

The speedy, slip stitich Doing Great Cowl is the chunky version of Doing Alright which I designed on a train journey to London to celebrate my daughter’s 16th birthday as well as finishing her exams and school. I enjoyed the slipped st section so much I just wanted to keep going with it. It is easy to memorise, and once you get into the rhythm it becomes addictive knitting.

The Doing Great cowl is knitted in the round in one piece. It starts with a provisional cast on and then the ends are seamed together to finish. It uses two colours of chunky weight yarn to show off the easy, but effective, slip-stitch pattern.

It was knitted in Cascade Eco+, 100% wool. It comes in small, medium and large width. The length can be adjusted to be longer or shorter as well.

And it knits up really quickly so makes a great last minute gift.

This pattern is made possible by my wonderful test knitters and tech editor. Thank you!

About the Doing Great Cowl Pattern

The Doing Great Cowl pattern is knitted with Cascade Yarns Eco+ chunky weight yarn.    You could substitute any chunky/bulky weight yarn. I used 5mm needles to create a warm fabric but if you wanted a drapier cowl, you could go up to a larger needle size. You’d use more yarn, so allow for that when choosing your colours.

Some of you might be seeing a theme here, as this goes with the Doing Alright pattern, inspired by the songs of Queen. I’m a big fan of Queen and love to design with them in mind. What inspires you to either knit or design?

Doing Alright 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 cowl.  It’s warm, lofty, chunky and knits up quickly, it comes in a lovely range of colours too, but you could substitute any chunky yarn that gets you the same gauge/tension

“I will go to bed after this row.”
