​Herringbone Cowl With a Twist
By Raeus Jae Cannon
  
Materials
• 1 skein Araucania Huasco yarn
• Size 13 needles
• Darning needle


CO 50 stitches
(RS) knitted Herringbone stitch until end
(WS) purl Herringbone stitch until end
Repeat these two rows until you have enough yarn to bind off and still have about a 2 yard tail. Each row takes approximately 1 yard of yarn (your gauge may vary).

After binding off, twist the finished piece one time (lengthwise) and sew the seams together with a whip stitch (to match the herringbone stitch).  Then finish by tying in ends.
 
 
Herringbone Stitch – difficulty: moderate to advanced
Knit side: slip 2 stitches (as if to knit) then insert left needle into both stitches and knit them both together. HOWEVER, only slip the first stitch onto the right needle (you’re splitting the stitch).
Next stitch: slip first stitch (as if to purl) and slip the 2nd stitch (as if to knit) onto the right needle, insert left needle into both stitches - knit them together and again, slip only the first stitch onto the right needle.
Repeat until last stitch remains.
Last stitch: Insert your right needle into the last stitch (as if to purl) and knit it through the back loop (in the same manner you’ve done all the previous stitches).
 
Purl side:  P2tog HOWEVER, only slip the first stitch onto the right needle (splitting the stitch as you did above).
Purl the last remaining stich
