The Sara Cowl: A Sari Ribbon Knit Cowl
February 28, 2011
I hope you’re having a great day! Sara over at Sans Limites has really been on a kick of making up some kick ass patterns for Darn Good Yarn. They are killer. Have you taken a moment to visit her store? http://www.etsy.com/shop/SansLimitesCrochet
A hand crafted recycled sari ribbon cowl that makes a global difference!
Gosh, sometimes when the chilly air graces the forecast we can tend to “frump out” on our outerwear. Well, put a stop to it with this wonderful cowl. You can use any of Darn Good Yarn’s Sari Ribbons so you can go in any color direction you want! Not only is it awesome, the yarn you’re using for this project is hand made by underprivileged women in India and Nepal using recycled silk sari pieces. So, you’re making and difference and looking oh so awesome!
Supplies: US 19 24” Circular Needles, 3 skeins of Darn Good Yarn’s Silk Sari Ribbon (Sara used Bliss for her cowl), stitch marker.
Stitches: K (Knit), C4F (Cable 4 Front) – slip next 2 stitches onto cable needle and hold at front of cowl, knit next 2 stitches from left needle, then knit the 2 stitches on cable needle, C4B (Cable 4 Back) – slip next 2 stitches onto cable needle and hold at back of cowl, knit next 2 stitches from left needle, then knit the 2 stitches on cable needle.
Cast on 54. This pattern is worked in the round. Begin with Row 1, taking care not to let the cast on stitches twist. Mark the beginning of the row with a stitch marker so you know when a row is complete.
Row 1: C4F 13 times
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: K2, C4B 12 times. K2.
Row 4: Knit
Repeat Rows 1-4, 4 more times making a total of 20 Rows.
Cut and bind off. Weave in ends and stay cozy in your new cowl!
