Knit Cowl Patterns for Women

Do you love the look of cowls when you see them on the street? A cowl is a striking accessory that every woman should have in her wardrobe. What makes a cowl different from a scarf? A cowl is a knit or crochet tube that you wear around your neck. It can act like the neck of a turtleneck or like an infinity scarf. You can wear them around your neck, as a hood, or like a capelet around your shoulders.

How to Knit a Cowl with Circular Knitting Needles

To stitch a cowl or a scarf, start by choosing your yarn and your needles – circular knitting needles are ideal for many different knit cowl patterns. A thick yarn will be faster to knit than thinner yarn, but select your material based on the season and the quality you’re looking for. Next choose a width; a narrower cowl will cling close to your neck and a wider one will fall more loosely. Then you will have to knit a gauge swatch to obtain proper tension and then you can start knitting. The instructions for our cowl patterns will help you every step of the way.
