Kim designed this easy to knit cowl with elongated stitches, which draw attention to the changing textures and colors of this beautiful, single-ply yarn.

Finished Measurements
10 x 72” blocked (11½ x 64” before blocking)

Yarn
2 Skeins Maxima by Manos del Uruguay,  (100% extra fine merino 219 yards each)  or 438 yards worsted weight, single ply yarn.  Colors Shown: #M2020 Spirulina, #M2552 Foil.

Needles & Notions
US 10.5 (6.5mm) 13” straight needle or size needed to obtain gauge; spare 10.5 needle for 3 needle bind off; tapestry needle.

We normally love using circular needles for flat knitting, but found that the extra wrapped stitches got too tight on the cord, making the next row a bit tricky and slow to work. We highly recommend straight needles for this project, or at least for the extra wrapped sections.

Gauge
16sts = 4” in garter stitch, blocked. An exact gauge is not crucial for this project.  

FYI: In order to give the fabric lots of openness, Kim used a needle that was 3 sizes bigger than the yarn label recommended.  She is also a very loose knitter, so if you tend to be on the tight side, you might want to use an 11.
