Kaleido knitting pattern



Kaleido is knit in the round in a garter stitch - so you knit one row and purl the other. 


  • casting on,
  • closing the circle,
  • knitting & purling,
  • switching to a new ball of yarn,
  • casting off.


Required materials:



One size fits all. The cowl will be approx. 80 cm circumference and 20 cm high.


About this project

This colourful cowl is comfy, warm and supple. A great addition to your outfit. 

You can of course decide for yourself in which order you knit the mini skeins. Create your own rainbow. 

I knit the cowl in the round. You can also knit a straightforward rectangle and sew or darn the edges together. If you do this, you can also flip one side once, to create a möbius band.

Contrary to general knitting laws, I did not change colour neatly at the start of a new row. I continued knitting one colour until it ran out. I did choose an "inside" side, to weave in the tail ends and hide the knots.  

I chose a simple, straightforward garter stitch, because this stitch makes for beautiful, supple knitwear which does not curl at the edges. Kaleido becomes beautifully soft and elastic with this stitch. 

When you change colour in garter stitch, it will show when you change colour on the "wrong" side or purl side. I love this handmade look. If you don't, you must pay attention to change colour only on the "knit" side.



1. Loosely cast on approx. 190 stitches with a colour of your choice and circular needles 3,5 mm. Close the circle and mark the start of your row with a stitch marker.

2. Knit in garter stitch: alternately knit one entire row and purl one entire row. 

3. When you've almost finished one mini ball of yarn, change colour at the start of a new row. Or break the rules, like I did, and switch when there's only 10 cm or so of yarn left.

4. Continue until you have knit all colours in your Mini Skein Kit. 

5. Cast off and weave in the loose ends on the inside of your cowl. 


CONGRATULATIONS! Your Kaleido cowl is finished and ready to use!
