Diagonal Ribbed Cowlcowl

by Cloverhill Yarn Shop

A fast knit for yourself or as a gift. Simple yet impressive! With two sizes small and large. Our pattern is a 4×4 Diagonal Rib Stitch, inspired by a pattern found in Barbara G. Walker’s “A Treasury of Knitting Patterns”

Any worsted weight yarn. 218 – 436 yds.
US 9, 24 (32)inch circular needles.
The top picture is using Amanda’s handspun yarn, the lower picture is using Malabrigo Twist.

This pattern uses multiples of 8 + or – 1 stitch. You can alter the pattern to suit your needs or creative tendencies. If you’d like a 2×2 rib, you’d multiply 2 by the number of repeats you’d like, for our pattern we’ve used (16 repeats of 8 )-1. The long size is simply doubled. Try a 3×3 rib or a 5×5. The possibilities are endless.


Cast on 127 (255) and join in the round.
Row 1: Knit all sts.
Row 2: Purl all sts.
Row 3: Knit all sts.

Begin working in pattern as follows:
K4, P4 for 7 inches or to your desired width.

Repeat rows 1-3.
Bind off loosely and enjoy!
