I had so much fun knitting this cowl, and I know you will too!   Whether you are looking to make this as a gift or to add to your store, you will fall in love with this pattern because not only is it quick and easy, but it looks like you spent a lot of time knitting a complicated stitch.

This cowl is worked flat (not in the round) and I used  Knit Picks Biggo Yarn in Bare.

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this cowl below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.
