I've never written a knitting pattern before but for those who asked how to make the gray cowl that I posted on Facebook here goes...

The Old Gray Cowl, (it ain’t what it used to be) be)

1 skein Gray yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft acrylic in a 4 weight)

Size 8 Circular knitting needles or any that equals 15 stitches = 4 inches

The circumference is apx. 22” and 7” tall.


CO 80 stitches (long tail)


Place marker and join


K first row

then begin pattern,

K5, P5 for six rows (this is unit 1) then switch to

P5, K5 for six rows (this is unit 2).

Repeat this pattern alternating unit 1 and 2 until you are satisfied with the length.  (I had total of 3 unit 1’s and 3 unit 2’s)

Knit one entire row then,

cast off .

I hope that the pattern is clearly written but if not drop me a line.
