Make a simple kids cowl with this free knitting pattern.
The cowl is really great for any beginners out there, as it uses basic knit (garter stitch) throughout.
Kids Cowl Pattern
The cowl pattern is easy to follow, knit flat on straight needles and then seamed. You could also use circulars if that is your preference.
This easy cowl knitting pattern is great for any beginners who are learning how to knit, as it is a great project for practising garter stitch.
The neck warmer size can also be adapted if you want to make it smaller or larger, just measure the circumference of the recipients neck/shoulders and adjust the number of stitches you cast on.
You can scroll down to see the free pattern below or you may choose to purchase the printable ad-free pdf version from my shop.
There is also a pattern bundle for sale featuring 31 of the baby and kids knitting patterns which is great value.
