Striped Chunky Cowl

I have been in the knitting mood lately.  As a result, I made a cowl for those cold, cold Georgia days. Maybe they don’t get Northern cold, but it  gets pretty chilly.   

Here is the pattern. 

Supplies:

Size 13 circular needles, 29in length

3 skeins Hometown USA 81 yds each (Super Bulky) 

Instructions:

1. Long Tail cast on 91. (A size smaller needle will make the ribbing tighter. I used the same size for the entire pattern.) 

2. Apply stitch marker, k2tog, *k1, p1 (repeat from * for 6 rows)

3. Knit around until the end of skein 1. About 13-14 rounds.  (Alternatively, end at stitch marker instead of running out mid-row.)

4. Add new color and knit around until the end of the skein 2. 13-14 rounds

5. Last, add remaining color. Knit 13-14 rounds. 

6.  *k1, p1 (repeat from * for 6 rows)

Cast off, weave ends through the cowl. 

Note-I am new to writing knitting patterns so please let me know if something doesn’t make sense. It is a simple pattern so I hope it is easily understood.
