Five By Five Cowl

In this workshop, you'll learn how to make the purl stitch, ribbing, provisional cast on and two methods for grafting while knitting a beautiful infinity loop cowl.

Felicia Lo · September 23, 2020

The Five by Five Cowl workshop is meant to follow the Learn to Knit workshop that taught the absolute basics of knitting: from casting on, to knitting a garter stitch scarf, to learning how to bind off and finish a knitted project. In this workshop, learn to take your knitting skills to the next level, with some more fundamental techniques including:

  • how to work the purl stitch
  • how to combine knits and purls into ribbing
  • how to do a provisional cast on
  • how to work a Kitchener stitch to graft two ends together in a very seamless way
  • also how to do the three needle bind off to do a quick, but more visible, seam

The project we’ll make in this series is the Five by Five Cowl: a cozy infinity loop cowl made by holding three yarns together (in our example we use 2 fingering weight yarns and a lace weight but you can use whatever you’d wish!). It’s a perfect project to practice these new skills on and have fun playing with texture and colour at the same time! Download the free pattern and get started!
