Ladder Cowl


This cowl has a lovely, lofty feel to it and once you have mastered the loopy stitch is very quick to make.  The loops or ladder effect is made by drawing out a long loop on each double crochet stitch that you make, you do this by wrapping the yarn over a ruler or piece of card. The cowl is designed so you can wrap it around your neck twice to make it nice and snuggly. It is made flat and then seamed. We quite like using two contrast colours, however, just one colour would like lovely too with the benefit of onky needing 3 skeins of Plump DK.

You will need:
Plump DK: 2 skeins of MC (shown in Liquorice), 2 skeins of CC (shown in Darjeeling)
4.5mm needle
ruler or piece of card approximately 3.5cm wide

Finished Measurements: 18.5cm (width) x 145cm (circumference)






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!
