Cowl Help

Postby SammyKnuckles » Wed Jan 18, 2012 6:23 am

Hey there guys!
I am new here and fairly new to knitting. I would really like to make this cowl I saw on ebay, but would like to make the hood bigger (to be more like a classic loose cowl with a lot of extra fabric) if possible. I just have no idea where to even start as far as creating (or mimicking) the pattern.

(I tried inserting the image but it wouldn't show up for some reason)

I was hoping to use a soft yarn for this, as my skin is really sensitive (some types of wool really irritate my skin, as does acrylic, etc)

Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!

It looks like a two part pattern. I can see that the stitches in the hood and the shoulders are going in different directions. The hood was probably knit first and then the shoulders were made by picking up stitches along one edge.
