Simple Linen Stitch Cowl

Anyone who has visited our shop knows that we are big fans of the linen stitch. Here's an easy cowl pattern that uses 1 skein of beautiful dk weight yarn; and it won't take forever to knit!

-1 skein Mineville Wool Project Single DK (100g/200m 100% merino) or 200m of double knitting weight yarn
-5.5mm 24” - 32” circular needle
-stitch marker

Cast on 221 stitches. Place stitch marker and join in the round.
Begin linen stitch: *Knit 1, bring yarn to front between the needles and slip the next stitch on the left hand needle as if to purl, take yarn back between needles (into knit position) and repeat these 2 stitches for the whole body of the cowl.
When only enough yarn is left to cast off, cast off and sew in ends.
