Thegither Cowl is a cosy accessory designed to reference tartan fabric created through a combination of stranded colourwork and slipped stitches. It begins with a provisional crochet cast on, before joining in the round and working repeats of the chart to form a long knitted tube.

The Thegither Cowl comes in two versions: a long version composed of 3 sections and a short version composed of 2. In each section you are working with 3 colours, where each colour takes a turn to be either the Main Colour, Contrast Colour or Accent Colour.

No round uses more than 2 colours at a time. And no floats extend beyond 5 stitches.

When all chart repeats have been completed, the live stitches at both ends are grafted together to form a möbius strip. When worn, this will lie beautifully snug to the neck. However, you may prefer not to twist your work to result in a regular loop.


4ply/fingering weight non-superwash wool for best results. Stated amounts include approximately 10% meterage allowance.
