Ono Cowl Knitting Pattern

$9.00

The sister pattern to the Ono Shawl. Ono is Maori for the number six, which is what this design was based around. Knit in garter stitch, with increases and decreases to give the cowl its bias. The first section consists of thin stripes, followed by a second half of big, bold stripes. Use eye catching colors to capture attention! This makes for a super long cowl that allows you to wrap around your neck a couple of times. Additionally, you can make this into a scarf with tassels at the end!

Written tutorials are provided in the pattern for the provisional cast-on, the three needle bind-off and doing intarsia (color work) over garter stitch.
