Support Local Yarn Guy (SLY Guy)

 

Support Local Yarn Guy or Sly Guy for short is a cowl and fingerless mittens pattern worked in MJ yarns. The cowl features a color work in a variety of textures including stockinette stitch, garter stitch, Andalusian stitch and lace.

The cowl is worked in rounds to length and then folded, so that the top and bottom edges are closed together using the three needle bind off. This results in a piece that hides the wrong side of the fabric, without having to double knit. The fingerless mittens are worked from the cuff in rounds.

Cowl: Width: 30” / 76 cm, Height: 10” / 25.5 cm
Fingerless mittens: Palm Width: 3” / 7.5 cm, Length cuff to top: 9.5” / 24 cm

24 stitches x 40 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette stitch on size US 4 (3.5 mm) needles; measured on a washed and blocked flat swatch.
