Energia One-Skein Cowl Free Knitting Pattern

I knitted up this easy diagonal lace cowl during just one evening of watching the Olympics. It worked up fast and was perfect to knit while watching TV. Just enough of a pattern to keep me interested, but not too distracting to take away from watching TV and talking. The cowl uses one skein of Adriafil Energia yarn and is knitted in the round. I used color Rapsberry Lips, but I must admit it was hard to choose, all of the colors are so pretty!

Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until panel measures 6" from the beginning. 
Bind off and weave in yarn ends.

YO:  yarn over

Happy knitting!

    To bad you have to print 25 plus pages out before getting to pattern.Wastes to much ink and paper.

      All I did was highlight and copy to MS Word and delete the parts I didn't want...I ended up with 1 page and that included the picture of the cowl itself.

      Great pattern by the way! Thanks. :o)

      What happened to writing by hand, theirs not much to the pattern.

      you can also highlight, copy and paste in an email to yourself. I do this all the time and print out the pattern or save for future use.

      You can also tell your printer which pages to print.

  2. Dear Anonymous, You obviously are not very computer savvy...neither am I but I know how to tell my computer to print just page 1 and 2!! Sincerely fellow knitter!! Dawn

    When I fit print, it brings up the pages. I scroll down to see how many pages are part of the pattern, go enter those page numbers and hit print. on several, I have seen the pattern does not start until page 2 or three. you could also save the pattern to your hard drive or through dropbox and then you can scan the pages through there and print them

  4. Hi Nancy, I have been following you on Google and I am impressed by your work and wonderful ideas. Thank you for making all this information available to so many people. You really have a wonderful thing going on!

  6. What you need to do is go to file up on the left and click on print preview, view the pattern pages and put in the number of pages you want, all others will not print.

    jot down on scratch paper...
