Grace Jones Cowl

By:

10 Comments

Make a bold statement this winter without a lot of work. If you know how to knit in the round, this Grace Jones Cowl will be a piece of cake to master. Just cast on 44 stitches and you're ready to start! The deep rib stitch of this pattern is simple, but creates a dramatic effect. This cowl's name name, no doubt, was inspired by the dynamic and theatrical performer Grace Jones herself!

I can not get to the pattern. You sure have made it difficult.

Not difficult at all for me. Just clicked on the link the pattern is right there under the picture. It is only a one line pattern as it it super simple.

You give the needle size 11 but what is the length?

Pattern says short circular.

Yarn amount is 200 gm (grams), and is noted at the very beginning near the photo... Most wrappers, I've found, give both gram and ounce weights. Hope this helps!

I didn't see that the pattern gives the amount of yarn needed. Couldn't be hard to guess I suppose?

No guessing involved if you are paying attention. Pattern clearly states 200g of Abuelita Thick and Thin, 100g=136 yards. so 2x136=272 yards.

I really like it too

I just LOVE this! So easy that I memorized the directions without having to make a copy and whipped one up in a day. And so warm! Also that Norwegian knitting site is great. Norwegians, like the British are great knitters.

Hi there- did you use the yarn it called for in the pattern? If not what did you use or do you have any suggestions on a yarn substitute? Thanks Heather

This is a very interesting cowl and I like that it can be used as a hood.

Marcella the cowl is done in the round from the beginning and you do the rows as they say in the directions:)

Hi @marcellafowlkes. I think you would have to contact the designer specifically so she can explain how it is done.

i would like to try the grace jones cowl, but the instructions are not clear as to how it is joined or when. please help

Marcellafowlkes7307235: If you knit and have knitted in the round, the directions are clear as to the how to and you can join and finish as necessary. Again, if you know how to knit you know how to join and finish and fill in the blanks.

Marcella, Using the short circular needles you cast on and then begin your first purl row. When you get to the end you do not turn the needles but place a stictch marker at the end and go right into the next stitch making it a circle. Be careful that you don't twist your row as you go into the next row of purl. Good luck. I know you will do great!
