Another lovely design by Rose Beck of RosyPosy Designs, this one includes two sets of instructions: one for a cowl/eternity scarf and one for a shawlette.
Here is what Rose writes:
"Cocoon Me is a set of wonderfully textured accessories using a cocoon stitch that looks interesting on both sides and is especially snuggly worked in a single-ply merino yarn. You might not undergo a metamorphosis when you wear these pieces, but you will feel cozy.
"The eternity scarf or cowl is worked in the round inside-out, while the crescent shawlette is worked top-down."
The samples that you see in the photos here were knit in worsted weight yarn, but any weight yarn may be used. If changing yarn, you will need to adjust yardage accordingly. The size of each piece is easily changed by working more or less repeats of the cocoon pattern.
Skill level: Intermediate.
Both written and charted instructions are provided.
The finished measurements (approximately) of the Cowl/Eternity scarf: 21 (42) inch circumference, 8 inches high, while of the Shawlette: 54 (64) inches across wingspan x 13 (15) inches deep
The yarn you will need if you knit in worsted weight is 150 yards for the Cowl and 300 yards for the Eternity Scarf. (The ones shown here used Malabrigo Worsted)
The Shawlette used 385 (550) yds worsted-weight yarn.
(Again, the medium sample shown used: Malabrigo Worsted)
This is a relatively easy and quick knit -- great for gifts and wonderful for cuddling into as the cold weather comes.
