Remember if you use a heavier weight yarn with a larger hook and then follow the written instructions; you will need more yarn than I used and the scarf will also be heavier and larger when it is finished.

Hi Janet, I’m sure there is a name for it somewhere but I kind of just went with it when I was making the cowl – I’m not sure if someone else has used it in a book somewhere too…it was just a variation on a mesh stitch I was using for something else to be honest 😉 I think I included the stitch multiple though if you check the post 🙂 All the best, Rhondda
Hi what stitch have you used to make the rainbow cowl i would like to make a blanket with this stitch
Love how colorful it is, Rhondda! Winter is so drab sometimes, that a pop of color is great to wear when facing a sleeting or rainy day. Will share on Pinterest!
