Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> For the cowl: 16 inch circular needles number 8 US (5 mm);

<> For the headband: needles number 6 US (4 mm);

<> Bonito Lanoso 49% wool, 51% acrylic. Orange color: 100 grams -300 m per skein (Used in total 1.5 skeins).

Knitting the body of the cowl:

I didn’t have a bulky yarn this time, so I was knitting a cowl scarf with 2 strands of the yarn at the same time.  You can use 2 balls simultaneously or just use 1 ball with yarns that come from the outside and from the center. 

Cast on 48 stitches for the cowl.

Row 1: selvage st (slip the first stitch), 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 38k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st (purl).

Row 2: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 36p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 3: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, [C3F] – 6 times 1k,1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 4: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 36p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 5: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 38k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 6: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 36p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 7: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 3k, [C3B] – 5 times, 3k, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 8: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 36p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Keep repeating Rows 1-8 until you reach desired length of knit cowl.

Cut the yarn leaving 35-40 cm tail.

As in my previous sandy winter cable cowl pattern I was using method of horizontal invisible seam to finish it. I believe it’s the best way to join two edges. Please follow the link and check detailed explanation of invisible seam here.

Using the same cable pattern start knitting headband or, as many call it, ear warmers.

Cast on 26 stitches for the headband. If you need to make the knitted headband narrower or on the contrary wider, just remove or add extra stitches keeping in mind that main cable scheme must be divided by 6.

Row 1: selvage st (slip the first stitch), 1k, 1p, 20k, 1p, 1k, selvage st (purl).

Row 2: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 18p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 3: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, [C3F] – 3 times 1k,1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 4: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 18p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 5: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 20k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 6: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 18p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 7: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 3k, [C3B] – 2 times, 3k, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 8: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 18p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Repeat Rows 1-8 as much as you need.

The set is ready, and it looks really adorable. If you are going to wear it during the winter, you can decorate it with a matching color fur pom pom or couple of them.

Thanks a lot for spending your time on my blog and reading both patterns - knit cowl pattern and knit headband pattern.

    I love the wicker set – cowl and headband. I started with the headband – did the first 8 rows and my project looks nothing like the picture. It seems to me the pattern is different for headband and cowl. The row after the cable row – in cowl, purl the middle stitches – in headband – knit those stitches. I am an experienced knitter – but need to follow a pattern. Are you sure yours is correct. I feel as if I can’t be that far off – but I do seem to be! Help!

      Hello Gerry, I do really sorry for making you confused. Please purl always after the cable row.

    I have a question about the headband I printed the pattern of and rows 4 &6 begin selvage stitch, selvage stitch I don’t know what to do about the second selvage stitch as with the first one you slip it purlwise do you do the same with the second one or do you purl it. I have relooked at the pattern online again and it now only has selvage stitch, selvage stitch written like that on row 5 can you please tell me what i’m supposed to do as I’m confused. Also I’m doing it in chunky wool and have decided to do it on size 10 needles they are thick ones. What ply wool did you use. Thanks Adele

    • crazyhands

      Hello Adele. Row 5 was simple misprint. Please start all rows with selvage stitch ( slip it purlwise ) and finish each row with selvage stitch (purl). I was doing in bulky wool. You can use any type of wool just control the width of headband. Hope it helps!

        Thank you so much it does help and I did wonder if it was a misprint. Adele
