Lago: Easy 1-Ball Cowl Knitting Pattern

What to knit? 
How about an easy cowl featuring just one skein of Berroco Lago yarn. This quick little project works up fast, I made mine in just one evening. It features stockinette stitch and dropped stitches for an open airy look and nice drape. Perfect for wearing with tees in spring and summer months.

Completed Cowl Measure: 6 1/4 x 19" (flat and after blocking)

You will need:
Cast on 120 stitches
Join round being careful not to twist stitches and place marker

Round 1: Knit
Round 2: Knit
Round 3: Knit 1, *YO 2 times, Knit 1.* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 4: Knit 1, *Drop 2 yarn overs off the needle, knit 1.* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 5: Knit
Round 6: Knit
Round 7: Knit
Round 8: Knit 1, *YO 2 times, Knit 1.* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 9: Knit 1, *Drop 2 yarn overs off the needle, knit 1.* Repeat from * to * around.
Repeat Rounds 5-9 another 3 times. 
Last Round: Knit
Then, bind off loosely. 
Weave in yarn ends. Block lightly (optional).

Berroco Lago Yarn - delicious color palette!

    The scarf in this photo had to be either knitted with a larger than #6 needle, or has more than 3 repeats of rows 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.

    According to the instructions the scarf should measure 6 1/2 inche wide, however, having followed the directions perferctly and I am a "loose" knitter, my finished width was only 4 1/2 inches wide even after I blocked and actually stretched as much as possible.

    I believe the instructions should have included at least one or perhaps two repeats of rows 5, 6, 7 8 and 9 or the needle size is incorrect.

    Very disappoined.

      In stead of being disappointed why didn't you just knit one or two more repeats? gmaj

      Yarn over. If you google you can usually see a video of this but basically it is putting the yarn over the needle before you put it in the next stitch to knit it.
