This cowl was a result of an escape to my local coffee shop, Stellar Coffee Company (thus the name), after a stressful week in my studio. I grabbed the squares I’d woven from one ball of Tempo and my tapestry needle and the rest is history.
Finished size: 30 inches end to end, 15 inches folded.
This cowl works up very quickly and uses just one ball of the fabulous S. Charles “Tempo” yarn. The shifting of colors is what makes it so effective to work with.
Weave 14 squares leaving the long tail for sewing together. Work in the short end as you weave.
Lay out your blocks in sets of two. Play around with the colors until you find a pleasing layout. There are many possibilities.
Whip stitch each set of two squares together using the long tail. Weave in any loose ends and trim.
Sew each of the sets of two blocks together, stair-stepping each set as shown in the photo above.
For the last seam, bring ends together and stitch.
Hand wash with warm water and mild soap. Lay flat to dry. Steam press.
