The Coffee Shop cowl is a beginner friendly pattern, designed to use just knit and purl stitches. Knit with soft DK yarn, the cowl is textured, reversible warm and lightweight - the perfect accessory for when you are out and about!

The easy to remember pattern repeats provide interest for established knitters, whilst a beginner knitter will find it an ideal project to practice knit and purl stitches.

Worked lengthways, the cowl is knit to the desired length and then seamed at the end to make a loop. There are ideas given at the end of the pattern on how to make the cowl into a double loop, a scarf or even a wrap – and also a handy hint on how to calculate the yardage required for your new projects!
