Straightforward Cowl by Bethany Hendrickson

Straightforward Cowl

This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Make 3 of these in the amount of time it would take to make a normal scarf. Great for gift knitting, leftovers, and small putups of luxury yarn!

To jazz it up, knit it with your favorite stitch pattern (knit/purl, cables, lace) on the center stitches instead of garter stitch.

This is a great pattern for teaching beginners how to knit because it’s so brief and gives them just enough practice knitting without losing their interest in what seems like a never-ending project. I do not mind if anyone prints this pattern out and uses it for teaching, though I do request that the pattern not be altered in any way, shape, or form either before or after it is printed.
