Tri-Light Cowl in Country Woman Magazine

Country Woman cvr



Normally I lean a little more toward rock ‘n’ roll, but today I’m feeling a little bit country…a little bit, Country Woman that is! The latest issue of the magazine is out, which includes the pattern for my Tri-light Cowl-kerchief. Get the mag on stands today, and the Cotton-ish yarn for this project at Oh, and the best part is that because this scarf is so light weight you can give Tri-light as gifts this season, but recipients can continue wearing it through the warmer months, too. Enjoy!

    I have been knitting for over 50 Years and I am having trouble with the Tri-Light Knit Cowl by Vicky Howell. I thought a Cowl is like a tube to go over your head as in the picture and not flat like a scarf but the pattern does not say to knit continually on the circular needle or anything about sewing it up the back when finished.
    The edging 3rd row says k1 yo knit to marker but you are already at a marker so I find it very confusing but would like to be able to finish it. Hope to hear from you soon

      Trying to make your Tri-Light scarf. It’s very confusing. Working with a lady that’s been knitting for years.Having a hard time making it. When you go on the circular needle does it get connected when you go around circle..You really don’t say how to do it. I’m looking to. make it for Granddaughter and is a little mis leading. Thought for sure it went over your head. That is what I wanted to make.How do you connect it together? Please. help us to understand it. Would like to know if you could tell us how we can connect it to go over our head, Thank You, Sure hope you can help me.

        It’s not worked in the round so no need to connect it. Once the piece is finished you just drape like a scarf or tie like a bandana. Hope that helps!

          Please help us with the edging instructions. The third row has me and others stuck. Is there a correction needed?

    • Jean Waters

      I am only a beginner at knitting and have gotten as far as row 3 on the edging
      and cannot go any further. Can you please e-mail me a way to finish it?
      I would greatly appreciate it.
      Thank You

    Am wondering if the instruction for the Tri-Light Cowl that was in Country Women’s Magazine in Dec/Jan 2014 on page 70 is correct for the directions, row 3? Please respond. Thanks, Dorothy

    I am VERY frustrated with your cowlpattern. I have been knitting for over 50 years and never saw such sloppyness. No service at all. If you make a mistake, apologize and adjust the pattern. Sincerely, Miekelien
