A delightful addition to the Creel Stitch family, the Wheat Shock Cowl invites you to dance to the rhythm of the stitches: a little to the right and a little to the left, swaying with the wind in the wheat field! This toasty, gender-neutral cowl knits up quickly in worsted weight yarn, with vibrant texture that reminds me of stacks of golden wheat stalks. Choose colors with a strong contrast for the most graphic visual effect. Feeling a little “extra”? Try Wheat Shock with a gradient or self-striping yarn and you might just find yourself doing your very own tango in the wheat field.

Row gauge is not essential
Note: When swatching for gauge, cast on a multiple of 6 stitches and work in the round to create your swatch. Gauge is less essential for a cowl, which makes it a great project for Creel Stitch beginners. (This is also a great project for learning to control your tension when working in a Creel Stitch pattern.)
