Groups of Loops Cowl

I am knitting a cowl for my mom for her birthday and was looking for patterns on Ravelry. I started the Mustard Scarf previously and didn't care for it once I started knitting although I was in love with the photo that I saw. I never looked the same, it looked sloppy and loose. I would knit a few rows and tear it out. So I took what I loved about the scarf and rewrote a new pattern for it. Here is the pattern for it. 

Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn, Grey
Size 11 Needles
Yarn Needle

CO 36 stitches
Work in Pattern Stitches for desired length. I knit mine to about 20 inches.

Pattern Stitch:
R1: Knit across
R2: Sl1, K1, *YO, K2Tog* repeat to last 2 stitches, K2
R3: Knit across
R4: Sl1, K1, *K2Tog, YO* repeat to last 2 stitches, K2

BO on a knit row. Sew ends together.

I will admit that this pattern isn't perfect. On rows 2 and 4 it feels wonky when you get to the end of the row sometimes because you might end up just knitting 3 but with the finished project you'll never know.
I won't tell if you don't!


  1. This is so pretty, I love it!! I've been looking for a nice pattern to make. Thanks!

  2. Thanks so much for posting this pattern. Can't wait to try it! What weight and how much yarn did you use for the cowl shown in the picture? Thanks!
