The Snowy Woods Cowl is inspired by Robert Frost’s poem, “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening.” This piece is worked in the round, for ease in working the textured trees which always face you as you knit. The reverse stockinette edgings roll to the back of the cowl, leaving just the trees in all their mysterious beauty.

This pattern was originally published in February 2014 for the Woolgirl Poet’s Club. It is now available to the public.

I reworked this design with a light Aran weight yarn. Original cowl (medium length) was knit with Oink Pigments DK, 100% superwash merino, 270 yards/100g. I treated it like a worsted, and liked the drape of the fabric.

Errata for the Woolgirl published version only:
(PDXKnitterati version is correct)

Two purl stitches are erroneously marked as knit stitches on the chart. Row 18 stitch 39, and round 30 stitch 56 should be purled, not knit. The written instructions for these rounds should be:

Round 18: p6, k2, p2, k6, p4, k6, p2, k2, p9, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p6, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p3
Round 30: p2, k1 tbl, p5, k4, p4, k4, p4, k4, p5, k1 tbl, p16, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p1, k1 tbl, p3

Sorry for the inconvenience.
