Ansh Cowl PDF
Ansh Cowl by Kavitha Raman is a versatile accessory that can live in your wardrobe and can easily be thrown over any outfit for an instant update. Knitted with a rich variegated yarn, it can add a brilliant color pop and round out even the most basic looks.
I knew I wanted the cowl to fall graciously around the neck with a pointy tip. I came up with a construction for the shape. And kept the stitches really basic. It turned out to be a reasonably quick and very engaging project. :)
Ansh cowl is designed to use one skein of DK weight yarn. It is knitted flat following a slightly different construction and then two edges are seamed together to form the cowl. Please see the last photo for the seaming at the back. The construction is explained in detail with a schematic in the pattern.
