Cracklin’ Rosie

In Cowls, Patterns, Worsted weight yarn by Shannon

Cracklin’ Rosie makes me smile, and so does this awesome and squishy cowl. In fact, I think even Neil Diamond would agree that it’s a beautiful and wearable accessory.


  • Finished Measurements: Small: 20” around, 9.5” tall. Large: 40” around, 9.5” tall.rt text here
  • Yarn: 150 (300) yards worsted weight yarn. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts LSS, colorways True Blood Red (large, red version) and PDX City of Roses (small, pink version).
  • Needles: US9/5.5mm circular needle, or size needed to get gauge. If you are making the small size, you will need a 16” or 24” needle. For the large size, a 32” or 40” will work best
  • Notions: stitch marker, tapestry needle.
  • Gauge: 16 sts = 4”/10 cm in stockinette stitch, measured after blocking.
