Aimée Cowl

I have already mentioned how much I likeVickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn by Caron! The perfect roving that mix acrylic and wool and enhance the stitches. The color pallete is perfect! And the price is spectacular!

I started to swatch with different colors, looking for an elegant curvy horizontal shape and the Aimée Cowl came up! I love the way that the stitch motif creates volumes and depressions that simulate cables! And the I-cord Finishing puts everything pretty well together! I hope that you appreciate this fast knitting project!


You can download Aimée Cowl pattern at Craftsy clicking here and at Ravelry clicking here!

Details about the project:

The version in Portuguese  is by Maria Leticia Cinto, a generous and very talented friend!


Approximately 456 yds / 418m of worsted yarn or 3 balls of Vickie Howell Sheep(ish)  (3oz/85g – 167 yds/153m). Sample in Taupe(ish) / 0011


24 stitches and 28 rows in 4”x4” in stockinette stitch


US 7 / 4,5mm straight or circular or needle to match the gauge


Waste yarn in contrasting color and tapestry needle


One size

Finished dimensions

Circumference: 54”

Height (widest part): 9 ½”



The project starts with a provisional cast-on, knitted straight and sewn at the end.

Slip the first stitch from every row. This will make easier to pick up stitches for the I-cord finishing at both sides of Aimée Cowl.

The last row must to be the RS 27th of the chart.

After sewing, there’s an I-Cord finishing at both sides of the circumference.

The blocking is optional (the sample wasn’t blocked).

PeaceKnitandLove…always! Paula

    I am attempting to make this pattern but I seem to end up with 2 extra stitches at the end of the Row 1. I have torn it out and restarted twice now. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi there

    I have never done an I-Cord stitch and I can’t seem to understand what I’m supposed to do.

    I get that I will cast on the slipped stitches, but then I’m lost. Could you explain better or do you have visuals.
