In the last couple of winters, I've worn more knitted cowls than regular scarves. Knitted cowls are quick projects, and you can use up small amounts of luxury yarns you might have in your stash.
In our new free eBook, Knit Cowl Patterns Ideas: 5 Free Knitted Cowl Patterns for Women, I've gathered five cowl knitting patterns for you to try.
Lisa Shroyer's Rainbow Cowl
is a beginner's delight, but it's also a great pattern for any knitter who wants to show off some beautiful self-striping yarn. It's knit in relaxing garter stitch; perfect for gift knitting!
The Gobi Cowl by Marlaina Bird is a beautiful lace and cable pattern finished off with your favorite buttons. The yak yarn this knitted cowl is knit in is soft and luscious against the skin.
My Winding River Cowl is a reversible cabled cowl. Since it's knit lengthwise and not in the round, you can make it as long as you want. Turn the Winding River into an infinity scarf and make a real statement! Knit this in a super soft yarn and you'll never want to take it off.
The Corseted Necklet by Sandi Wiseheart is a lovely little cowl, knit with just 170 yards of worsted-weight yarn. It's laced closed with beautiful ribbon. You can choose a contrasting colored ribbon to really make the corseted detail stand out.
I designed Orange Crush as an extra-tall cowl knit made with lace-weight yarn. The lace yarn is knit on larger needles to give it fabulous drape; you can crush the cowl down to make a cozy and warm winter accessory.
Have fun knitting these wonderful, free knitting patterns for cowls. Whether you're knitting for yourself or making gifts, you'll enjoy making these quick-to-knit winter warmers!
