Need a cowl kit? You can get your LOLODIDIT KIT HERE

The I HEART SHEEP cowl is a celebration of those dear little sheepies that provide us with yarn. Wooly and wonderful, I think most knitters would agree that sheep deserve a shout out. I HEART SHEEP!

Worked SEAMLESSLY from the top down, this cowl knits up quickly (like any good cowl should), but wears like a hassle-free shawl. Unlike traditional tube cowls that rumple into a pile of knitting around your neck, this shawl-shaped construction lets your knitting shine by creating a triangular front and shortened back. The shape is wonderful, wearable, and just plain fun to knit. This cowl is available in child and adult sizing!

This Cowl Includes:

  • Top-Down, Seamless Construction
  • Shawl-Shaped Wearability
  • Simple, Fun Colorwork
  • Charts & Written Instructions
  • Endless Stash-Busting Opportunities

Child (Adult)

NOTE: The child size has two sections of sheep. The Adult size has three sections of sheep.
