I love knitting linen stitch, but in the wrong yarn it can be difficult to wear against the skin. I love working with the Alpaca DK, but sometimes it’s just a little too soft for the shape I want. Then I came upon a solution! Linen stitch with ultra soft Banshee Yarns Alpaca DK is like my structured, unstructured knitting dream! This cowl is, all going well, the forerunner of a dress in the same stitch and yarn!

This pattern includes a digital copy of the pattern.

Pattern Notes 

This pattern is knit in the round using linen stitch.  It can be worn doubled over or without wrapping it.

Height: 20cm / 8 inches

Circumference: 118cm / 46.5 inches

Measurements taken after cowl has been wet blocked and dried flat.

Yarn Substitution 
Other DK yarns can be used but I recommend swatching to ensure that the linen stitch doesn’t make a soft yarn too rough.

24 stitches and 50 rounds to 10cm / 4 inches over linen stitch in the round on 5mm needles, wet blocked and dried flat. The stitch gauge includes both the knit stitch and the slipped stitch.
