Concertina Cowl


This beautiful cowl has a gorgeous texture and concertinas down to keep your neck super warm when there is a chill in the air. The large version is long enough so that you can double it over by twisting it over your head.

You can either carry the colours up as you knit or break them off at each colour change. Be careful not to pull too tight if you carry them up! I’ve given instructions for knitting in the round or flat. I would recommend knitting in the round if you can as this avoids the seam which is always a bonus.

You will need

2 (4) skeins of Plump DK in main colour (MC) shown in Pavlova (both)
2 (4) skeins of Plump DK in contrast colour (CC) shown in Earl Grey (small) and Gooseberry Fool (large)

Sizes: S/L

Finished Measurements: Small 60cm circumference, Large 150cm circumference

Tension: 20 sts and 30 rows to 10cm/4” using 4.5mm needles

Needles: 4.5mm needles (circular – at least40(60)cm - if knitting in round)

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at [email protected]

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
