Learn three fun techniques in this quick to knit cowl! You’ll make elongated stitches and gather them up into floral motifs, learn the quilted lattice slip stitch mosaic stitch (single or contrasting color), and learn to add beads with a Bead Aid tool (recommended, available at Twisted) or crochet hook.

The Embellishment Cowl is knit in the round from the bottom up with 2 skeins of fingering weight yarn in contrasting colors. You can add add bling with sparkly yarn, beads, and contrasting color. The pattern features an elongated Shell Lace novelty stitch pattern, a Quilted Lattice slip stitch pattern, and optional (but recommended!) beads. You can knit the Quilted Lattice with or without beads, or knit the “quilting” threads in your contrast color, with or without beads. So many options!

Three sizes are included, but you can increase or decrease your stitch count for sizes in between and beyond.

This class is held virtually via Zoom, a popular video conferencing service. Participants should already have a basic familiarity with Zoom prior to class. Class will be held at the indicated date and time (Pacific Time) for 2 hours. 5 students minimum, 15 students maximum.

Skill Level

Intermediate. You should be familiar with knitting basics like knit, purl, cast on, bind off, simple stranded colorwork, working in the round, and following a pattern.

Supplies

You need to purchase or have:

  • two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn, one skein of each
  • US 4/3.5 mm 24"/60 cm circular needle. You’ll want a smooth join between cable and needle so your yarn overs don’t get stuck at the join. For this reason a good quality fixed circular may be better than an interchangeable for this project.
  • stitch marker to note beginning of round
  • Bead Aid tool (recommended), or a crochet hook US 13/14 (0.90 mm) for placing beads
  • 2 boxes of Miyuki 6/0 seed beads, or 400 of any brand size 6/0 seeds beads for regular cowl or 600 beads for the longer cowl

  • a Ravelry download of the Embellishment Cowl pattern. You'll need to print your pattern or download it onto a device that is separate from your Zoom device so you can refer to it during class.

Zoom
  • We request that students already be comfortable using Zoom. Because every device is different, teachers are not able to provide much in the way of tech support.
  • Your teacher, like so many of us, is working from home. There is always a possibility that technology or family or pets or neighbors or weather or who-knows-what could briefly interrupt your Zoom lesson. If that happens, know that we appreciate your patience and understanding!
  • In the event of a prolonged disruption (e.g., alien invasion, meteor strike, power outage at the teacher's location - none of this has ever happened during a class) we will work together with the teacher and students to find an agreeable solution.

  • Given at least 72 hours' (3 days) notice, we can refund the class fee less $5 for the class packet and knitting pattern PDF you will have already receivedRefunds can be made to your original payment method or as store credit.
  • If you provide less than 72 hours' notice or don't call into the appointment at all, we cannot provide a refund.
  • If the teacher needs to cancel due to an emergency, we will contact you as soon as possible and provide a full refund to your original payment method.
