Commemorating the first Knit For Fun Retreat in Park City, Utah, this simple cowl features an embossed diagonal stitch pattern that repeats over 12 stitches and 24 rounds. It begins with a Channel Island cast-on, followed by a few garter ridges, and ends with a few garter ridges, followed by a Channel Island bind-off for tidy, roll-free edges at the top and bottom.
Worked in fingering-weight gradational yarn inspired by the colors of the Canyon Lands of Utah, this cowl has an earthy, geological look.
The cowl shown uses one skein (300 yards [274 meters]/75 g) of Vice Yarns Blurred Lines (90% superwash merino, 10% nylon) in the custom Knit For Fun Retreat colorway Canyon Lands. Most any sock yarn could be substituted.
