Knitted Cowls

With holiday knitting in the works, cowls are a great last minute gift to knit up and they're really popular! Here are a few of my favorite cowl patterns and the inspiration for them:

The Look: Gap seed stitch cowl

Knit It: Como Cowl using just 2 balls Debbie Bliss Como yarn in lilac. This is a great seamless pattern for quick Christmas gifts. This is a free Yarn Garden pattern with the purchase of the yarn and can be done in an evening on US 17 needles!

This cowl is knit using 1 ball of Rowan Drift in color Plantation and the Como Cowl Yarn Garden pattern.

The Look: Anthropologie Infinity scarf

Knit It: Creek Cowl using Moorland by Classic Elite in color blue jay.

The Look: Burberry Cabled Cowl

Knit It: Burberry Inspired Cowl pattern by Julianne Smith. We used 3 balls of Latte by Ella Rae in color russet brown. This is a simple cabled cowl knit flat and seamed together using the kitchner stitch.
