Pebble Brook pattern by Allison LoCicero |

My newest cowl pattern, Pebble Brook, is now available!

For this pattern, I was inspired by the colors of the rocks and the flow of the water in a mountain stream. Pebble Brook uses slipped-stitch cables to highlight the color changes in variegated yarns and give this cowl a sense of movement. It is knit in the round from the bottom up and the size is easily adjustable (instructions for adjusting the size are included).

This cowl is the perfect pattern for a quick holiday gift! Some of my testers zoomed through it in just a couple of days! And if you cable without a cable needle it can really fly off the needles! If you’ve never tried cabling without a cable needle, this is the perfect project to start with. There are a lot of fantastic tutorials on YouTube. And since these are slipped-stitch cables, you are only working one stitch in each cable and you are slipping the other stitch. So that makes it even quicker!

The cowl calls for just one skein of Malabrigo Rios (the color used in the sample is Piedras). Rios is such a gorgeous, soft, and affordable yarn and is perfect if you’re planning to knock out several of these for gifts! And this pattern looks amazing in the solids as well!

I’m excited to see your Pebble Brook cowl so don’t forget to tag your WIP and FO photos with #frecklesandpurls on social media!

And don’t forget that the Indie Design Gift-A-Long is still going strong! So if you decide to make a Pebble Brook for someone (or for yourself!) this month, come knit it along with us for the chance to win some prizes!
