Block Party Cowl
Yarn: Fingering weight yarn, 450 - 475 yards
Size: 54” around and 10” high
Cast on 280 sts, knit 1 rnd.
Border: †k2, p2 around for 2 rnds, then p2, k2 around for 2 rnds †, repeat from † to † once more, increasing 8 sts evenly in last round (288 sts).
Big blocks: Rows 1-20: *Knit 16, purl 16* around. Rows 21-40: *Purl 16, knit 16* around. Repeat 1 more time, decreasing 8 sts in last rnd.
Border: †k2, p2 around for 2 rnds, then p2, k2 around for 2 rnds †, repeat from † to † once more. Knit 1 rnd, bind off.
Note: I used one skein of Handmaiden Merino Camel Lace (80% merino, 20% Baby Camel) which has only 437 yards. I had to fudge the bind off because I was running out of yarn. If you want to use a skein of 437 yard fingering yarn, I suggest knitting 4 rows in garter stitch for the borders rather than doing 8 rows of double moss stitch as portrayed here.
