This beginner level pattern is a perfect first knitting project. The simple pattern gives a good introduction to knit and purl stitches, while the techniques of ribbing and seed stitch add interest to the finished items. The cowl is knitted as one flat piece which then joins with buttons when worn.

More experienced knitters will also like the speed you can finish the whole set in (thanks to the super chunky yarn), making it a great option for hand knitted gifts.

The pattern includes instructions for two different sizes: S/M (teenage/small adult) and M/L (adult).

In addition to the yarn required, this pattern also calls for 4 x 30mm buttons to finish the cowl.

Also available in this set are patterns for a coordinating headband and a wrist warmers.
