Bo – a textural cowl


Today I am happy to bring you my newest free pattern:  Free pattern: Bo


Knitted using fingering weight hand-dyed yarn from Anna Gratton’s Little Wool Co.

While the particular yarn shown in the pattern, a silk/wool/mohair mix has now been discontinued, Anna continues to dye beautiful yarn that is perfect for this pattern as her colourways are translated across a number of bases.  A substitute yarn is recommended:  Little Wool Co. mohair/merino 4 ply (fingering) weight.

Textural silk

A variety of easy stitch styles in this cowl provide knitting interest and texture, while at the same time allows the knitter to showcase the beauty of a variegated yarn.


Yarn:  Anna Gratton Little Wool Co. fingering-weight hand-dyed yarn (approx 600m for the cowl)

Needles:  4mm circular (100cm length recommended)

Happy Knitting.
