Brodgar Cowl

We are thrilled to be adding another fabulous pattern to our collection –  the Brodgar Cowl! This pattern was designed and generously donated by Sue Lazenby.


“Inspired by the ancient Scottish stone circle the Ring of Brodgar & the marking on the stones, this is a 2 colour cowl knitted in the round. The front is a stranded pattern with reverse stocking stitch at bottom & top, the reverse side is striped. Worked in fingering weight, the extra thickness from the stranded pattern & double thickness gives extra warmth for cold weather. It would be suitable for the intermediate knitter who has worked some stranded patterns before.”

What you need to get started:

  • Fingering weight yarn 400 yd /366 m 100 g. Preferably all wool or a wool blend.
  • Approximately MC: 290 – 330yd / 265 – 302 m; CC: 170 – 190 yd / 155 – 174 m.
  • Needles: Circular needles: 2 x 24” / 60 cm: US # 4 / 3.5 mm or size to achieve desired gauge & one size smaller to hold CO sts for grafting. Needle size is a recommendation only.
  • Waste yarn (& crochet hook if required) for provisional CO; 6 stitch markers (one to mark start of round in a different colour from the rest & 5 to mark pattern repeats); tapestry needle; pins for blocking.
