I love the stitch pattern in the cowl. Since it would be unwise to begin yet another sweater project, I made a stand alone cowl out of a heavier yarn just so I could test drive the stitch pattern. It’s a great project for a Christmas gift: it takes almost no finishing and uses only one skein of yarn.
I wrote up the pattern to share:
Trinity Stitch Cowl
Yarn: Aran Weight (1 – 50 gram skein)
Needles: size 10.5 – 16” circulars
Gauge: Not too terribly important
(You could easily and successfully make this out of worsted weight in perhaps a size 8 needle, and vary the size by using more of less stitches when casting on, just make sure your total number of stitches is divisible by four.)
CO: 96 stitches, join in the round and place marker at the beginning of the round
Round 1: P all sts.
Round 2: *[P1, k1, p1] into next st (1 st increased to 3 sts), k3tog; repeat from * to end.
Round 3: P all sts.
Round 4: *K3tog, [p1, k1, p1] into next st; repeat from * to end.
Repeat Rounds 1-4 for Trinity Stitch.
Repeat until you have just a few yards of yarn left, hopefully ending on a round 1 or round 4. Bind off loosely. Weave in ends. Block with a steam iron.
Send me a photo if you make one! Or better yet, make the sweater and send me a photo of that!
