This cowl’s main feature is the feather stitch. The minute I began working with this stitch, I fell in love with it. Not only is it beautiful, but it is so thick and squishy! It does take a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, it is a very fun stitch and works up quite quickly. I’ve included instructions for making 3 sizes of the tube style cowl plus an infinity scarf. The one I’m wearing in the pictures is an infinity scarf.
Instructions given to fit size Small; changes for Medium, Large, & Infinity Scarf are in ()

This is so pretty. Well done.
Thank you, Emma! <3
Hi…Love the pattern and easiness of the feather stitch. I do have one question, rows 5-10 says to repeat row 3. Row 3 is a hdc, sk1, ch 1. Do you mean to repeat row 4? Thank you
Ah! Actually, the rounds were mis-labelled. Thank you for noticing that, Deborah! I have fixed it now. 🙂
