Gulf of Maine – Light


Gulf of Maine – Light is the DK-weight version of my original Gulf of Maine cowl! The original was knit in a yarn that has since been discontinued, so I was excited to revamp the pattern in a different yarn and also one that was a bit lighter-weight and could be worn in multiple seasons and different climates too. It features 3 different colors of Berroco’s Summer Silk yarn, a silk/cotton/nylon blend (although any DK-weight yarn will work!) and this time around I included instructions for 2 different sizes – a shorter (taller) version and a long, infinity-style version.

This is the PDF version of the pattern. After going through the checkout you will receive an email with a downloadable PDF link. This pattern is also available on Ravelry.
