This cowl would make a great first stranded knitting project for a developing knitter. Each round is either a 2-2 or 4-4 repeat of the color pattern. What could be easier? Of course, it’s so fun that knitters of all skill levels will enjoy it.

Don’t be intimidated by the fine gauge. The knitting goes quickly and everyone will admire your work wherever you knit.

The finished cowl measures about 12.5” tall and 21” around.

Note:

  • This cowl is designed to fit somewhat closely around the neck. If you prefer a looser fit, you can add more repeats in multiples of 8 sts. Unless you also plan to use more yarn, this will result in a shorter cowl.

  • The stranded motif is charted only.
