An ideal project for beginners, the Coney Island Cowl knits up quickly in super bulky yarn using only knit and purl stitches to create an all over texture that looks more complex than it is. Thick yarn, large needles, and any easy to memorize pattern makes this a project easily completed in an afternoon.

This pattern is for you if… You’re comfortable with knits and purls but want something a little more exciting than garter or stockinette stitches, you need a quick knit for a gift or charity donation, or want something to keep your hands busy while watching Netflix.

Move along if… You want a more complex stitch pattern to keep you on your toes.

Super bulky weight yarn in the following amounts: 87 yards (80 meters) / 140 grams (4.94 ounces).

You should be able to knit this with one skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick with a few yards left over.
