Jellyfish Cowl

I've made many cowls this season, for I've fallen in love with this elegant piece of accessories clothing. I know this cowl is made by many, and in many versions. I've just wanted to put my touch, which is the Picot Binding Off method.


NAKO spaghetti Effect; 3.5 oz/ 100 g, 65.6 yds/ 60 m approx.
25% wool, 75% premium acrylic.
75532, 2 balls. (color A)
Antarctica 7653,  1 ball. (color B)
volcano 7794, 1 ball. (color C)

Note: I've used whole two balls of color A, and about 10 to 12 yds only of the other colors (B and C).

-Size U.S. 11 (8 mm) needles.

-Tapestry needle.


140- 150 yds/ 135- 145 m approx.

Level: Easy

Knitting Terms

k = knit
p = purl

12" (30.5 cm) long x 18" (46 cm) around (without wearing) .


10 sts x 16 rows = 4" (10 cm)
in Rib pattern used in this design.


With yarn A and circular needle, cast on 80 sts, join up the stitches to work in rounds, making sure not to twist them.

Pattern row: k 2, p 2, repeat to end of row.

Color sequence
6 rows with color A
2 rows with color C
2 rows with color A
2 rows with color B
20 rows with color A
2 rows with color B
2 rows with color A 
2 rows with color C
2 rows with color A

Picot Bind off method:

First, work another (k 2, p 2) row with color A , turn:
  1. cast on 2 stitches on left needle.
  2. bind off 4 stitches.
  3. move the one remaining stitch from right needle back to left.
Repeat the three steps binding off method to last stitch and keep it on right needle, insert the right needle to the first (bound off stitch), yarn over, pull loop and bind off the last stitch, cut yarn, weave in loose ends, turn the first third part of cowl outside.
