MATERIALS: 

approx. 200 yards of fingering weight yarn – I used leftover sock yarn and it worked out well.

 

US size 5 16 inch circular or you can magic loop this – just be careful of the yarn overs at the end of Row 2.

 

Gauge:

6 stitches  per inch in stockinette

 

Cast on 100 stitches loosely – join and place marker to mark beginning of round.

 

Edging rows:

 

Purl 1 row

Knit 1 row

Purl 1 row

 

Start pattern rows.

 

Pattern:

 

Rows 1 & 3 – Knit

 

Row 2:  *k1, yo, k3, sl1 – k2tog, psso, k3 yo, repeat from * till end of round. (this is the row you’d need to notice that last yarn over)

 

Row 4:  *p1, k1, yo, k2, sl1 – k2tog, psso, k2, yo, k1, repeat from * till end of round.

 

Rows 5 & 7:  P1, k9 around.

 

Row 6:  *p1, k2, yo, k1, sl1- k2tog, psso, k1, yo, k2, repeat from * till end of round.

 

Row 8: * p1, k3, yo, sl1 – k2tog, psso, yo, k3, repeat from * till end of round. 

 

Repeat Rows 1 through 8 for a total of 10 times or till desired length.  You can easily make this longer if you have enough yarn.

 

Edging rows:

Purl 1 row

Knit 1 row

Purl 1 row

 

Bind off loosely in Knit.

 

Block lightly.  My finished cowl measure 9 inches across and 8 inches in height – I would block that out to 10 inches across and 9 inches high to bring out the scallop in the edge.
