Voilà: Everlasting Cowl

Today, Knit Picks released their Sock Yarn Scarves pattern collection. These are scarves and other neckwarmers made from sock weight yarn, also called fingering weight yarn.

This collection includes my Everlasting Cowl pattern.

I didn’t know this until I saw the booklet, but mine is one of only seven designs.

I feel like part of an exclusive club.

Submission, acceptance, and fulfillment for this cowl happened last year, before I started blogging, but I’ll tell you all about it in an upcoming post.

For now, let’s enjoy these professional photos that Knit Picks provided.

My cowl didn’t make the cover, but it’s the featured design for the collection on the Knit Picks website scrolling marquee. (!)

Better than the cover.

Everlasting Cowl by Robin Allen | A Texas Girl Knits

This combination of a traditional lace pattern with sockweight yarn makes a warm, feminine, lightweight, wearable cowl that won’t take up much room in your coat pocket.

It’s knit seamlessly in the round with no shaping and minimal finishing, so it’s a quick knit for accomplished lace knitters and an easy project for beginners.


  • Worked seamlessly in the round
  • No shaping
  • Reversible
  • Written and charted instructions
  • Can be knit in any sock or fingering weight yarn

Gauge: 22 sts and 32 rows = 4″ in Everlasting Lace pattern, blocked and relaxed. (Gauge for this project is approximate.)

Skills: Knitting, purling, decreasing in purl, increasing with yarn overs, working in the round, researching techniques you’re unfamiliar with.

To Ponder: Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she had laid an asteroid. |Mark Twain|
