Beaumont cowl

I designed this cowl while staying in a lovely little village in France, called Beaumont. 

You will need: 
22-24” 4.5mm circular needle 
22-25” 5mm circular needle 
170 metres DK yarn 
one stitch marker 
cable needle 
tapestry needle 

This makes a cowl with a 24” circumference, to make it larger or smaller simply increase or decrease by 12 sts, but this size should fit everyone. 

Using 4.5mm needle CO 156 sts using cable CO, join for working in the round and remember to place the stitch marker! 
K2, p2 rib for four rounds. Change to 5mm needles. 
Rows 1, 2, 3, and 4: *K6, p1, k4, p1, repeat from * to end of round. 
Row 5: *C4f, k2, p1, c4f, p1, repeat to end of round. 
Rows 6, 7, 8, and 9: Same as round 1. 
Row 10: *K2, c4f, p1, c4f, p1, repeat to end of round. 

Repeat these 10 rows four times, then repeat row 1 four times. 
Change back to 4.5mm needles and k2, p2 rib for five rounds. 
BO using a 5mm needle – this will help the rib to fan out and fit on your shoulders better. 
Weave in ends and you're done!

As somebody who almost always wears turtlenecks, I love this cowl!

I'm going to try to make this for the hubs! I just got some lovely Shetland wool-Cashmere blend yarn today on sale and I think this pattern will be perfect for it!
