Tortora Cowl

By Thelma Egberts

Would you like a cowl to accompany the Tortora hat from Knitty First Fall 2011? This cowl is based on that pattern.
It’s textured look is formed by alternating purled bobbles with vertical knit lines. Those bobbles are worked in an uncommon and interesting way. Yarn overs help you to form 5 stitches out of 1. After a few rows, those 5 stitches are decreased back to 1 again. It’s real fun to do!


Finished measurements:
Circumference: 80 cm
Height: 30 cm
Gauge: 16 sts/26 rounds = 10 cm in stockinette st

Materials
Yarn: HWS Markoma Noorse Sokkenwol Colour; colorway blue 952.
Recommended Needle size:  4,5 mm circular needle/US #7

Pattern notes:
The organic texture of the cowl was created by working bobbles at irregular intervals.The Tortora hat and cowl require a lot of purling. If you don’t like that,  you can work them inside out!

For the Totora hat, a chart indicates placement of bobbles. The Tortora cowl has a written pattern and is not charted yet. For a chart, print out Knitty’s Tortora chart 4 times. Attach 2 charts by connecting stitches numbered 5 -40 on left side to stitches 1 – 72 (2 times). Now place one prolonged chart on top of the other. After round 36 you should skip round 1-7 and proceed with round 8 – 30. (56 rounds in total)

INC4: Increase 1-to-5: [p1, yo, p1, yo, p1] into next st.  1 st increased to 5 sts.

DEC4: Decrease 5-to-1: slip next 2 sts together, knit wise, as if to work a k2tog. Knit next st, then pass both slipped sts together over st just knit. K2tog, then pass previous stitch over stitch just worked. 5 sts decreased to 1 st.

Using circular needle, CO 108 sts. Place marker and join to begin working in the round, being careful not to twist.
