Isager Berlin Cowl Kit
A yarn and pattern kit for the popular Berlin Cowl pattern by Helga Isager, knit in Alpaca 3 (50% alpaca/50% wool)
This cosy cowl with Helga's typical clever approach to construction is such a useful and wearable piece, using only 3 balls of the very gorgeous chunky weight Isager Alpaca 3. The front and back are knit flat (and shoulder/back stitches left on hold) then joined as the shoulders are created.
Because of the way the front and back are incorporated with the shoulders and the neck is then completed in the round, we would recommend circular needles all the way through.
I used an interchangeable set so I could just leave stitches on hold on the existing cable and use the needle tips with another cable for the next section. This isn't necessary but did work nicely. I used separate 3 cables. Cable length didn't matter for the sections knit in the round.
