Your question: What is a knitted cowl?

How many stitches do I cast on for a cowl?

To find out how many stitches to cast on, multiply the stitches per inch by the desired width of the cowl. For example, if your gauge is 2 stitches per inch and you would like your cowl to be 23 inches wide, then multiply 2 by 23 to get a total of 46 stitches to cast on.

How long should I knit a cowl?

Try 12–24 inches for a single-wrap cowl and 8–12 inches for a longer cowl. The cowl should be at least 18 inches tall if you want to wear it as a snood. If you want an edging, work a few rounds of garter stitch as follows: *Knit 1 round; purl 1 round. Repeat from * once.

How do you end a knitted cowl?

Seaming Edges

If you knit your cowl flat with straight needles, one way to end the cowl is to bind off the edge, then seam the cast-on edge to the bind-off edge. This leaves a ridge on the wrong side of the work, but the right side displays an invisible seam that blends with the other stitches.
