This simple cowl can be made by anyone who can cast on, bind off, and perform the knit stitch!
Lately I’ve seen folks pinning pictures of cowls, rocking cowls in their outfit posts, and sharing their desire for cowls for the fall season. It didn’t take long for me to get sucked in, and quick as can be I grabbed a skein of yarn from my stash and whipped one up for myself.
Making one of your own is as simple as one skein of chunky yarn, some large needles, and a few hours of knitting time - and my new free pattern!
NOTE: Instructions for this cowl come with directions for making with three different weights of yarn. The specs below list all of those yarns, along with all the corresponding needle sizes. To make your cowl, you will only need one type of yarn, and thus just one of the needle sizes.
