Elegant Knit Cowl {Knitting}: Free Pattern

This is a gorgeous knit cowl pattern that is very easy to make, and an ideal project for beginning knitters! Perfect for gift giving, and everyday wear.


1 Skein of Loops & Threads Cozy Wool (Or a comparable super bulky weight yarn)

Size US 17 Single Point Needles

Tapestry Needle


St: stitch

K: knit

Size: One size; child/teen/ladies.

Gauge: 1.75-2 sts/inch in Garter Stitch

Note: This cowl is knit width-wise, meaning the length around the neck. To make it slouchier, work the piece until it’s a longer length.


Cast on 24 stitches using the Long Tail Cast-On Method, or method of your choice.

Row 1: Knit each stitch across.

Repeat row 1 until cowl measures 22 to 24 inches. I worked until I had just enough of the skein of yarn left to bind off and sew the seam.

NOTE: If you’d like the cowl to be wider, therefore hanging a little more loosely around the neck, then continue to knit until you reach the desired width.

Bind off stitches.

Weave in ends.

Using matching yarn and a tapestry needle, and your preferred method for seaming, sew the two short ends together to close.

Slip it on to be stylish and cozy!!
