Even though the cowl in the pictures is in hues of grey, this cowl will work with any color combination you can imagine. I love the idea of playing with an “ombre” of colors for this cowl. From dark to light, in beautiful gradations of the same color.

This cowl can be worn by men and women!

Upon purchasing this pattern, you will receive a download link for the PDF pattern. In the PDF pattern you’ll find the link to the YouTube video tutorial. An almost 40 minute tutorial guiding you through the steps to make this cowl. I strongly recommend watching the video as the pattern might seem a little wordy in the beginning. Nothing works quite as well as a video tutorial to follow along!

Now for some of the things you’ll need:

Yarn & Hook
I recommend using a worsted weight yarn for maximum squishiness around your neck. I chose a 6mm (J) Hook to go with my worsted weight yarn because puff stitches need a bigger hook size to prevent them from being too tight. The recommended hook size on the yarn label was between 4 and 4.5 mm, to give you an indication of how many sizes up I went.

The finished size of my cowls, using the amount of chains specified in the pattern, is 30 (width) by 20 (height) cm. That’s about 12 by 8 inches. You can adjust the size of the pattern by adding or subtracting chains at the beginning. Make sure to add and subtract in groups of 2. The amount of chains has to be an even number.

The video will be available to you on YouTube permanently. However, you are not allowed to share the link with anyone who hasn’t purchased the pattern. A lot of time and effort goes into making these tutorials, as well as the equipment needed.

If you have any questions regarding the pattern, please contact me! I’ll be very glad to help you out!

Happy hooking!
