North Broad Cowl Scarf Pattern
In the mid 2000s, I started making a cowl scarf that I really liked. My friends soon wanted them, too, and encouraged me to sell them on etsy. I did that for several years before taking a break from etsy. As I packed one of the scarves for our recent vacation to Banff in the Canadian Rockies, I realized that I really like this scarf, so I should turn it into a pattern to share with you.
At the time, drop stitch scarves were really popular, but I didn't know the technique, so I created the pattern without an actual drop stitch. It is a nice faux drop stitch and is easy even for beginning knitters. More advanced knitters can knit this in an hour or two, which makes it great for a quick gift or a last minute fashion accessory.
I've knit the North Broad Cowl Scarf with Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande, which has a nice feel to it and is pictured above. I've also made this with Lion Brand Homespun in tons of colors. Corinthian is my favorite colorway, but I've also knit it with Candy Apple, Harvest, Grape, Cream, Golden, Lagoon, Parfait, Apple Green and Black. You can see more examples of colors - HERE, HERE and HERE. The nice thing about Homespun is that you can easily wash and dry the scarf in your washing machine and dryer if you put it in a garment bag.
