Wrap-Around Cowl

from Elizabeth Smith
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Wrap-Around Cowl
Wrap-Around Cowl
Wrap-Around Cowl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Cast on
  • Bind off
  • Basic pattern reading skills

Pattern Description:

Wrap-Around Cowl is knit lengthwise, working back and forth in garter stitch with rows of dropped stitches. When buttoned, it becomes a versatile cowl that can be simply draped around your neck or wrapped twice around for a close fit. Buttonholes are placed while you knit, so there is no need to pick up stitches at the end.

A simple and enjoyable project, prefect for any level knitter. I used The Fibre Company's Canopy Worsted which is so beautiful to work with--and you'll only need 3 skeins for this project.


4.5 sts = 1" in garter st

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Finished Length: 36-40"


  • Yarn: 275 yds worsted weight yarn, shown in Canopy Worsted by The Fibre Company (20% bamboo, 50% baby alpaca, 30% merino wool; 50 gm = 100 yards), 3 skeins in Ginger. Use a very soft yarn that feels comfortable worn closely around your neck.
  • Needles: 29" OR 32" circular knitting needles in size US 7 or size needed to obtain gauge

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle or crochet hook to weave in ends
  • 4 buttons, 3/4"
