For the love of Cowls

Cowls were my best seller last season, which was quite a surprise. They were among my most expensive merchandise so I didn’t make that many of them, thinking my more less expensive items (i.e., hats) would sell more. I did sell a lot of hats, but I sold ALL my cowls! Cowls were the perfect option for people looking for a gift for their Moms or Mothers-In-Law, and a number of people purchased them for a very nice end-of-year Teachers’ gifts! So this year I’m making a ton more cowls! Here are my favorite cowl patterns so far:

Honey Cowl

Such an easy pattern to remember, and with a quick little adjustment to the pattern, you can make it completely seamless! From the helpful nots of Kibbles, “Jogless jog trick: (for avoiding seam transition) at end of every knit round, remove marker, knit one more stitch & place marker in new spot (so it is now one stitch over from before). The pattern now becomes a 2-round repeat when you do this (instead of 4-round repeat).”

This cowl is great in any yarn – solid or variegated – and it has options to make it shorter or longer. It’s a crowd favorite for sure!

A Very Braidy Cowl

New to me this year, I just knit this up the other day! I started it one night and finished it the next. This one in a one-of-a-kind MadTosh Vintage.

Escarpment Cowl

This pattern is best for yarns with gradient coloring or 2 yarns you’re striping together. For this one, I used 2 colors of Muse superwash merino wool. I started with the multicolored yarn, then when I had about 1/4 of it left, I started to stripe with the hot pink, ending the pattern with garter rows in just the pink.

Look out for more cowls in my Fall Collection!
