Luxurious Slip Stitch Doing Alright Cowl by Emma Sadler

Luxurious Slip Stitch Doing Alright Cowl by Emma Sadler

Luxurious, Slip Stitch Doing Alright Cowl by Emma Sadler

The luxurious, slip stitich Doing Alright Cowl is the original version of Doing Great which I designed on a train journey to London to celebrate my daughter’s 16th birthday as well as finishing her exams and school.

The slipped stitches section is representative of the journey there and back. The stripe section is for all the sightseeing and the show we went to see.

It went far too quickly and all too soon we were on our way home again. The plain sections are the lovely chilled out times we spent together in the hotel or in the restaurant.

The Doing Alright 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 lace weight yarn to show off the easy, but effective, slip-stitch pattern.

It was knitted in Sylvan Tiger Yarn Methera Lace a BFL and Silk blend. The Doing Alright cowl comes in small, medium and large width. The length can be adjusted to be longer or shorter as well.

And it knits up beautifully for a warm, but lightweight and stylish cowl.

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

About the Doing Alright Cowl Pattern

The Doing Alright Cowl pattern is knitted with lace weight yarn.    You could substitute any lace weight yarn or combine a smooth yarn with kid silk to add texture. I used 2.5mm 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 and the name is 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?

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 stunningly soft and silky, it comes in a lovely range of colours too, but you could substitute any laceweight yarn that gets tension/gauge.

Speedy Slip Stitch Doing Great Cowl by Emma Sadler

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?
