Purl Onion by Aimee Alexander

I love a repetitive easy to work but complex to the eye project and Purl Onion is just that.  The cowl uses two contrasting skeins of fingering weight. I used Iron Horse and Rime as they drapes wonderfully and work beautifully together.

Purl Onion is worked seamlessly in the round. Instructions for the stitch pattern section are written out line by line and we have a video tutorial should you need it, All measurements are given in metric and Imperial for personal preference.


Yarn: Fingering weight. Shown in PDS Iron Horse and Rime.

Color A: 300 yd / 275 m

Color B: 300 yd / 275 m

Needles: 24” / 60 cm circular in the following size:

US 5 / 3.75 mm

Notions: One stitch marker and tapestry needle for weaving ends.

GAUGE (blocked)

Obtaining gauge is not critical for this project, but yardage requirements may vary with gauge changes.

24 stitches and 32 rows to 4” / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch

23” / 58 cm length

    So fun to choose yarn from the PDS store in Whitefish-can't wait to get started on Purl Onion. I love the subtle texture that lets the beautiful PDS yarns shine!
