Carmella Cowl is an infinity-style cowl with a mixture of different textured stitch patterns. Easy and quick, this is a great ‘relaxing knit’ project. The finished product is a super cozy and squishy cowl that you’ll want to wear all winter long.

It calls for bulky-weight yarn that is knit up a couple of needle sizes larger than you typically would. The sample is knit up in Malabrigo Chunky, which typically calls for US 10 or 11 needle, but in this pattern I recommend a US 15. The cowl is long enough though that if you preferred to use a slightly smaller needle (like a US 13), that the circumference should still be long enough to wrap around your neck twice.
