Gray Street


A warm and squishy cowl, perfect for gift making (or for yourself!), Gray Street is an infinity style cowl knit in the round with bulky-weight yarn and features a twisted rib stitch pattern. Three different colors are used – you can either have a gradient affect (like that in the sample) or play around with other color combinations. Pattern also includes a photo tutorial on how to work the stitch pattern.

This is the PDF version of the pattern. After going through the checkout you will receive an email with a downloadable PDF link. If you prefer to purchase through Ravelry, click here.

Yarn Substitution Ideas:

  • Purl Soho Super Soft Merino
  • Manos del Urugay Franca
  • Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky
  • Malabrigo Chunky

Needles and other supplies:
• US 15/10 mm 32”/80 cm circular needle or size needed to obtain gauge (note: Puffin is a very bulky yarn, so for traditional bulky-weight yarns, you may want to go down a needle size to a US 13/9 mm.)
• 1 stitch marker
• Tapestry needle or crochet hook to weave in ends

Helpful Hint regarding Needle Size:
The yarn used is Quince & Co’s Puffin, knit up one needle size larger than I would typically use with the yarn to get gauge (because of the tight nature of the stitch pattern). If you are substituting yarn, choose a needle size that is one or two sizes larger than what the yarn’s “suggested” needle size is (doing a little swatch to make sure you like how the fabric looks in that needle size is always a good idea!)
