Knitting, SweetGeorgia

Aviat by Corrina Ferguson

This lush cowl-kerchief is a scrumptious delight with twisted stitches, extra length at the front for tucking into your jacket, and a lofty, soft drape. Using only one skein of DK-weight yarn, it knits up quick-as-a-wink for your early autumn accessory needs.

Our dear friend Corrina, who has crafted some beautiful pieces for us before, has outdone herself with this ultra-soft, decadent cowlette that you are absolutely going to want to knit up for your fall wardrobe. The cowlette starts with a flat triangle, and is then joined and worked in the round to form the cowl neck. And those aren’t cables you’re looking at, but rather Left and Right Twists; otherwise known as “mock cables.” Have you ever heard of that before? It’s a somewhat quirky way of knitting two stitches in combination, but that’s all it is – knitting. The results are so “cable-like” that it looks quite intricate. If you’re hesitant, don’t be – I’ve got two quick tutorials for you right here:


24 ½” / 62 cm neck circumference, 20” / 51 cm long in front, 7 ¼” / 18.5 cm long in back

1 skein of SweetGeorgia Superwash DK in Biscuit (256 yd / 234 m per 4 oz / 115 g skein; 100% superwash merino)

Size 6 US / 4.0 mm needle.
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Yarn needle

16 sts and 20 rows = 4” / 10 cm in pattern, after blocking

You can find Aviat on both our website and Ravelry for only $8. Check out more of what Corrina is doing at her website and, as always, be sure to share your finished project with us on social media with the hashtag #sweetgeorgiayarns.
