Comfy Cozy Cowl!

Just in time for Christmas knitting! A new free pattern!

If you’re like me and love the feel/look of worsted weight, cold-weather items, but live somewhere that it doesn’t get too cold, this cowl is perfect for you! Its made with yummy worsted weight yarn, but the YO/K2tog rows allow from breathability so you don’t become too warm. Perfect for long color repeats, where you want to highlight the yarn, but also want a little bit more interest than plain stockinette stitch. This cowl would even look great with tonal or solid colored yarns! I’m releasing this pattern just in time for Christmas knitting as well, so don’t hesitate to make it as a gift! You are also welcome to sell finished objects made from this pattern, provided you link to my blog in any/all ads for you product. Enjoy!
