I really enjoyed making the Marked Alaska Cowl. The instructions were clear, It was simple enough to get into a rhythm and knit up quickly but definitely not boring! The recipient absolutely LOVES the finished product.
Marled Alaska is a tapered cowl, knit in the round and inside out. Yup! Inside out - though many prefer the outside in - so this could be called a reversible cowl. By holding two strands of fingering weight yarn together, a squishy DK weight marled
fabric is created. It’s a great way to use that super special skein of fingering we brought home and snuggled in our stash long ago, or perhaps the one that is begging to come home with us now.
In the cowl pictured I used Denali in Basic Sock but you can use whatever variegated sock yarn that makes you happy. Even a solid if you want! (Although it won't be marled.)
This pattern is skilled at a Beginner Knitter Level.
Easy to follow instructions. Used Owl colorway from Woodlands collection. Shows stitch detail well. Quick project for last minute gifting. Love that it’s reversible. Might use another of my Woodlands collection to make one for myself.
