Sleigh All Day Cowl | Pattern
Sleigh All Day Cowl | Pattern
A 24-day advent knitting adventure with lace and brioche.
This pattern is written for a 24-skein advent calendar with 10- or 20-gram minis in a fingering weight. You may substitute the mini skeins with scraps and leftovers or a combination of full skeins in two or three colors.
The pattern includes different sections of lace repeats, one-color brioche and texture, making this a fun, beginner-friendly project, broken down into day by day instructions.
This cowl is knit in the round, utilizing a provisional cast on to create an infinite tube to wrap yourself in when the weather turns colder.
Final measurements are approximately 29” (folded in half) x 11” (285cm x 33cm) after blocking.
Final weight of sample is 330 grams.
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
Gauge: 16sts by 32 rows = 4” / 10 cm in stockinette, after blocking
Note: Gauge is also personal preference and does not need to be exact. This is listed just for reference.
Materials & Supplies Needed:
- US 6 (4.0 mm) 24” or 32” circular needle, or size required to obtain gauge
- Darning/tapestry needle
- Stitch Markers (at least 1)
- 24 20g (80yds) OR 10g (40yds) fingering weight mini skeins
- 100g (400yds) of a fingering weight yarn in a contrasting color (optional for brioche sections)
A total yardage of 960 - 1920 yards (878 - 1756 m) is needed.
Yarn Used in Samples:
2022 The Fibre Fox Advent Calendar
24 - 20g mini skeins on Merino Singles
- If you’d like to work the Two-Color Brioche Sections, I highly recommend adding a 100- gram tonal to use as your CC color. Be aware that the CC will only show through the front (right) side of the cowl since the wrong side will be the inside of the tube.
- You can work the Garter Sections in the CC as well if you prefer a color break between each section.
- You can hold a strand of fluff alongside your yarn during the Garter Sections for a pop of fuzzy floof.
- If you’d like a wider cowl, cast on additional stitches in multiples of 12.

It is recommended to hand wash and lay flat to dry, but the fiber is machine-wash and dry-able.
Each skein is thoroughly rinsed, but be aware that some additional bleeding may occur for the first few washes. You can include a color-catcher or a bit of white vinegar as added protection.
Small batch hand-dyed yarn is unique in that no two skeins are identical. If you are working on a project with multiple skeins, we highly recommend alternating them to prevent pooling and to blend them together.
Each listing price is for one skein of yarn, unless otherwise stated in the description.
