Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Backward Loop cast on (video ref is noted)
  • Yarn over
  • KFB - Knit in front and back of stitch
  • Binding off

Pattern Description:

A squidley little cowl!
Leggy in the front for fashion and pointed in the back to add a little warmth to the back of your neck.
This is a very fast knit. It is only 29 rows! I made mine in an evening watching TV. You will use 2 strands of sock yarn held together throughout. You can be creative with color by using 2 different sock yarns or use the same one doubled for a solid look. I prefer yarn with a little drape to it that perhaps has rayon or cotton in it. Such a small amount of sock yarn is needed that you may even be able to use leftovers! Knit with a size 8, 24" circular needle makes it easy to handle knitting in the round. Gauge is not terribly important for this pattern, I suggest achieving a gauge of somewhere between 3 - 4 sts per inch.


3- 4 sts per inch. Gauge is not terribly important however I would not go more than 4 sts per inch or it will be tight on your circular needle.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • One size fits all


  • A very small amount of yarn is used, I use 2 different sock yarns., Approx. 85 yds each that are held together. Or, you can use worsted weight yarn as well.

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 stitch marker to mark the beginning/end of your round.
  • U.S. size 8 (5mm) Circular Knitting Needle that is 24" in length.

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Any Sock yarn (2 of them, you will hold double). You may also use worsted weight yarn as long as you stay in the gauge range.
