The pattern is designed for use with any DK or Worsted weight yarn. It'd be especially lovely in our merino silk pearlescent worsted weight (3 skeins total needed) or Dewy Dk yarn (3 skeins - this was knit using 3 skeins of our Champagne colorway). Another option is to use fingering weight yarn (still only 3 skeins needed) and hold the yarn double (two strands together).
What Makes This Cowl So Darn Great
•The pattern is easy to memorize. This is important. You want to be able to knit while talking. Or watching tv. Or riding in a car. Or flying in a plane. Or while in a busy coffee shop. If you can avoid having to check your pattern every round, it's mighty helpful and less stressful.
•It's just so incredibly versatile. Don't you just adore patterns that can be worn in multiple ways? Wrap it around twice for a cozy, winter scarf look. Or wear it over your head (love that look) for an elegant appeal (or let's be honest, to cover that hair in the rain or snow - very helpful if your hair frizzes up in moisture like mine). Or just toss it casually around your next once, grab your purse and head out the door for some groceries.
•You don't have to worry about running out of yarn. The pattern is designed so that you can use the yarn you have on hand and knit until the cowl is as wide as you like. You could use one skein and make a thinner cowl. Or two skeins for a medium-sized cowl. The version shown uses three (4 oz) skeins of dk weight yarn; approximately 750 yards. You just stop knitting when you're nearly out of yarn, which I describe in the pattern.
•Let's be honest. It's sexy. Seriously. This cowl is dreamyyy and you'll feel like a supah stah wearing it. Make it with an elegant solid or semi-solid yarn or go for a fun and funky look with a variegate. Wear it proudly around town, knowing you look amazing.
•It's reversible. What? Does this thing keep getting better and better? Why, yes, indeedy, it does. You can literally turn this inside out and wear it like a boss. :)
It uses size US 9 (5.5mm) circular needles and is great for beginners to advanced-level knitters! The only stitches needed are knit and purl. Nothing crazy or complicated here! Life is complex enough. Let's knit something easy and gorgeous.

Thank you, Chandi for another fantastic pattern. I'm really looking forward to knitting this one!
Thank you so much for making this pattern available to us! I was able to whip out a narrow yet super soft cowl in no time: the pattern is fun and easy to memorize, as advertised. The recipient should be very impressed with her gift.
My new favorite cowl! One of the most relaxing, go with the glow patterns I’ve knitted so far.
I used a similar, luxury yarn that is super soft and buttery. I gave it to my mom, who absolutely loves it and wears it everywhere!
I am in love with this pattern! So generous of you to offer it for free! thank you! I have other projects to finish before I make this - I can't wait!
I love your pattern. and the yarn. I plan to start the cowl next week. I know your pattern will be easy to read and knit.
This pattern I'm starting to love to knit on everyday. I'm on my second skein of yarn. It's a long process but it's almost done. Thanks for an easy pattern for a beginner knitter
I love the flow of the cowl. It's gonna be fun and quick to make. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely pattern!
Fast and easy knit. Looks amazing. Very adaptable to different yarns. I used the luxurious Woolfolk FAR (4 skeins) . Would be great gift idea for Christmas
I made this scarf for my daughter and she loves it! She receives lots of compliments when she wears it!
