A New Easy Knitting Pattern
I have a new addition for you to add to your list of free knitting patterns for scarves and cowls! This knit cowl is made in Baah Sonoma in color Tart Apple, which is a smooth dk weight 100% Merino Superwash yarn. That fiber means it is comfortable against my skin and pleasant to work with. I love a good cowl! It’s much like a scarf, but without the ends to come loose on you.
This cowl is knit in the round from the bottom-up. It’s a very simple pattern, with nice texture, but easy enough for a near-beginner. The most complicated part is the applied i-cord edging on top and bottom. However, I had never done applied i-cord before making this cowl, but I found this tutorial video from Berroco and was able to figure it out very easily. You can do this!
I knit this cowl on size 9 needles, which makes a fabric with nice drape — very nice to wear. Both sides of this knit cowl pattern have an attractive appearance so, it’s no problem to have either, or both, sides showing. The color is so on trend! Pantone just released its 2016 color report, and bright green is going to be a great shade to use!
