On a recent shopping trip I spotted an adorable cozy cowl in the window of Aerie. Being a knitter, there is no satisfaction in purchasing a garment that has already been knit by someone else. So, I opted to count the stitches and recreate the cowl myself.

The original cowl was knit flat and seamed. I opted to work the cowl seamlessly in the round. A single ply bulky or chunky yarn will work best for this project. It is meant to be drapey. My prototype (in photos) was knit on US 13 needles. I will knit my next cowl on US 15 needles to get even more of a drape.

These cowls work up quickly! They are perfect for holiday gift giving! Please note - This pattern is free and will remain free. I will not profit from it. The design credit goes to Aerie. I simply transcribed the pattern. Feel free to make as many cowls as you would like to for gifts. Please do not sell or reproduce this pattern for sale.

125-150 yds of bulky or chunky yarn (single ply is best)
275-300 yds of aran single ply yarn held double (I used Mirasol Hasa held double)
Large eye sewing needle/darning needle
1 stitch marker
US Size 13/9mm or US Size 15/10mm 24” circular needle (depending on how dense or drapey you would like your cowl to be)

Please swatch! If your gauge is different, you may not have enough yardage!
3 sts to 1” in stockinette st
(row gauge irrelevant)
