This beautiful bobble stitch cowl is such a nice handmade accessory. The bobble stitch is not used excessively which is why I like this pattern so much.
I was not a fan of bobble stitches for the longest time. I prefer bobble stitches in patterns that are used sparingly or when they create a picture or words.
The bobble stitch in this pattern is paired with the half double crochet stitch worked in the third loop.
The great thing about this pattern is that it can be made using 3 different weights of yarn! A DK light worsted, a worsted and a bulky weight.
So, you basically get 3 patterns in 1 with this bobble stitch cowl.
DK Weight Yarn:
The yarn used for the DK weight is from an indie yarn dyer – ThreadHead Knits Co. The color of the yarn is called Rose Gold. It was on a single ply DK base which may no longer be available.
Yardage needed for the DK weight is about 230 yards. Hook size used is 5.5mm but always check gauge and use what ever hook size that meets gauge for that yarn weight.
Worsted Weight Yarn:
The yarn used for the Worsted Weight is an all time favorite of mine. And that is Lion Brand Heartland Yarn. There are SOO many great color options to choose from. The color used in this pattern for the Worsted is Wolf Trap.
Yardage needed for worsted weight is about 220 yards. The hook size used is a 6mm but always check gauge.
Bulky Weight Yarn:
The yarn used for the Bulky Weight cowl was actually 2 strands of a worsted weight held together. That was Lion Brand Basic Stitch.
Bulky yarns you can also try are Loops & Threads Charisma or Premier Serenity Chunky.
Yardage needed for bulky weight yarn is upwards of 180 yards. A size 8mm hook is used but always check gauge.
So, having this pattern available in 3 different weight yarns makes this easier for you to just choose a yarn that you may already have in your stash.
