Martina's original cowl

Wolkig is a marvelous free pattern (via Knitty.com) by Martina Behm.  It requires only one skein of this delicious yarn and makes a most beautiful cowl that is an easy knit.  Read on for more data....


Please get your pattern directly from Knitty here  It is a free pattern but you must download it yourself (for copyright reasons).  We offer here some beautiful yarn to knit it with -- or to use for something else if you so choose, of course.


The Design

Here is what Martina writes about this cowl:

I love cowls. They are easy to wear, they will not fly off in a brisk wind, and they keep you warm.

The Wolkig cowl is twisted and has extra volume due to strategically worked decreases and increases, so it can be stretched a little to fit comfortably over your head when putting it on. Stretched in the other direction (lengthwise), it will fit snugly around your neck without leaving any gaps where the cold wind might sneak in.

Use only one skein of a luxurious merino-silk-blend (choose a multicolor for extra fun!), and watch the fascinating spirals grow under your hands.

The best thing is this: Wolkig (named after the German word for “cloudy”) has only one line of pattern. Take it out to knit night, on the bus, to the movies, everywhere – it is so easy that you will not need to take the pattern with you. Chatting to your friends or watching a fun flick will not mess this project up.

Yarn and Colorways

The original scarf was knit in Fino from Manos del Uruguay, a 70% merino/ 30% silk yarn with 490 yards (450m) in each 100g skein.

We offer the same yarn but different colorways.  You can see our colors in the line of photos on the righthand side of the top picture and again below that. 

1.  Rosewater is a pale rose, a not-quite-solid with varying tones of the soft look that reminds me of pale pink lemonade. 

2.  Inkwell is again a not-quite-solid, a tonal blend of deep and rich aegean blues. 

One skein is all you need to knit this cowl that is roughly 21" x 28".
