Father Time Cowl Pattern


a pattern by

Steven Fegert





1 skein of fingering weight yarn

Size 4 US/3.5 mm 40″ needle


YO = Yarn Over

K2tog = Knit two together

tbl = through the back loop


Using the long tail cast on, cast on 300 stitches. Join in the round, being careful not to twist.

Knit in garter stitch for 5 rounds (Knit 1 row, Purl 1 row, Knit 1 row, Purl 1 row, Knit 1 row)

Pattern Stitch:

YO, K2tog for a row

Knit 1 row plain

Repeat 2 pattern stitch rows until you are almost out of yarn or to the desired height of the cowl.

Knit in garter stitch for 5 rounds (Knit 1 row, Purl 1 row, Knit 1 row, Purl 1 row, Knit 1 row)

Finally, bind off loosely. I suggest k2tog tbl, place stitch on right hand needle back onto the left needle and repeat all the way across.
