This light and lofty cowl feels like you are wearing a cloud around your neck. It is easy to work up and makes a great gift. The alpaca wool is soft and warm – perfect for cuddling!
This cowl is started with a provisional cast on and then is knit in the round for a double layer. At 2/3 of the way through, you turn the tube inside out and then continue knitting to the end. The two ends are then grafted together for a completely seamless look.

- (Less than) 1 ball El Cielo from Cascade Yarns
requires approx 400 yds / 65 g
- 8 mm / US 11 16” or 20” circular needle
- Spare needle in same size or smaller (optional – for grafting)
- Scrap yarn (optional – for provisional cast on)
- Stitch marker
Note: Instead of using a provisional cast on and grafting the ends together at the end, you may use a backwards loop cast on (or preferred method) and then bind off your stitches loosely when you finish. Then, sew the ends together.
Provisionally cast on 60 sts with scrap yarn. Join to work in the round.Place marker for beginning of round. Slip marker throughout.
With working yarn, begin working in Stockinette Stitch (knit every stitch) until cowl measures approx 45” from cast on or 2/3.
Turn the tube inside out so the purl side is now facing out. Slip the first stitch purlwise. Continue knitting in Stockinette Stitch for another 20” or to desired length.
Undo provisional cast on stitches and place stitches on the space needle. Cut your yarn leaving enough for grafting (approx 1.5 yds). Hold the two needles parallel and graft the ends together. Weave in ends.
