Flist Cowl


Flist is an old Scots word for a shower of snow. With cosy colourwork from top to bottom, the Flist Cowl will keep you warm despite the weather! This is a quick knit and perfect for using up leftover balls of yarn. Combine it with the matching hat to stay warm this winter! The Flist Cowl has two sizes to choose from – for little people or big ones!

The pattern is fully written with a chart for the colourwork pattern and also includes a photo tutorial for a super stretchy cast-on called the Estonian Cast-On for the bottom of the cowl. The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos.
