Free knitting pattern: Emily’s Simple Leaf Cowl

I’m so excited to feature a free knitting pattern by Emily of Strawberry Patch Ramblings today! She’s used one of our new colours of the beautiful Manos Silk Blend and created a very pretty cowl with a lovely leaf design. I do love a cowl! Over to Emily for the pattern. Thanks Emily!

Spring-Cowl

Yarn: 100g Manos Silk Blend or Double Knit weight Yarn (this colour is Danube)
Needles: 5mm & 4mm circular needles or DPN’s
Notions: Stitch Marker, Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations:
PM – Place Marker
K2TOG – knit two stitches together
YO – yarn over
M1R – Make one right

Using 5mm needles cast on 100 stitches (this will give a quite fitted snug cowl, if you would like a looser cowl simply cast on more, be aware that you will however require more yarn)
PM, Join in the round, taking care not to twist. Switch to 4mm needle.
1st round: *K1, P1 repeat from* for one round
2nd round: *P1, K1 repeat from * for one round
