Linen Chevron Cowl

Hello everyone!

It has been a very crazy and busy month or so. I know, it has been a while since I last posted an article but it really has been hectic. Because of the time restraint, it has taken me months to complete this cowl and I have to admit that I am very pleased with the end result. The Linen Chevron Cowl was knitted using Shi Bui’s Linen yarn and it features a distinctive chevron design. Because the pattern is a little long, I’m going to keep this intro short and jump into the fun part…the pattern.

    I’m reading this pattern and I’m just a little confused.There seems to be quite a few rows of Stockinette stitches between each set of Chevron and I do not see it in the instructions. Am I missing something?

    Beautiful cowl!
    But like Pattie,I’m confused because there seems to be more than 2 rows of Stockinette Stitch between the 2 sets of Chevron when you look at the pictures but only 2 rows are knitted in the pattern. How many rows of Stockinette should be in the pattern ?

    I would like to knit this for our church auction in the Spring. May I have your permission to do so? And would pattern credit go to Purl Avenue or your personal name? It’s absolutely gorgeous!

    I was wondering how to work the pattern on straight needles. I’m not a very experienced knitter. I understand the stockinette and seed stitches and can do them on straight needles. I’m unsure of the chevron stitch part on straight needles. Thanks for any info you can give me! I LOVE the pattern!

    This is lovely! I hope you won’t be offended by my question. Is there a way to knit this on straights? These would be very stylish placemats, so knitting flat would be what I’d need to do.
