If you’ve visited my blog before, you will probably know that I really like statement pieces and versatile items. The latest thing off my needles is another 3 in 1. And it is also easy – a mix of stocking and reverse stocking stitch with bulky yarn and a few decreases. You can wear it three different ways, as a cowl, as a poncho/capelet and even as a skirt. And it’s reversible!
I think the secret is to use one textured/self-striping yarn and one plain. Or perhaps lots of different colours. As a cowl it looks like this:
With A, cast on 80 stitches, place marker and join.
Purl 5 rounds.
With B, knit 3 rounds.
With A knit 1 round and purl 3 rounds.
Repeat until you have 10 knit 2 rounds with colour B.
At the same time, from the second repeat, reduce one stitch at a time at the beginning of every other round 12 times.
With colour B purl 3 rounds and cast off loosely in purl.
