This Textured Knit and Purl Cowl is a remarkably easy cowl knitting pattern.

Beginners will love this easy knitting pattern because of how simple the stitches are and how lovely the texture is. Even advanced knitters may want to snag this knitted cowl pattern for their collection; it's just that lovely. Style this attractive, textured cowl with a tank top for a late summer look or add it to a sweater for an autumn-appropriate style.

What a pretty pattern and so simple. With the right yarn it will look so elegant. It is starting to get cold here in NY and a pattern like this will work up quickly and look so nice. Thank you.

This is a pretty pattern and easy to do. I've got some sky blue chunky yarn that I have been wanting to use up and this would be perfect. The pattern is free, but if you want the printable pattern, then you have to go to Etsy. The pattern is so simple, there really is no need to do so.

Beware - this is not a FREE pattern as advertised. (

Nothing to beware of, the pattern is entirely free!

How pretty is this sweet little knit cowl pattern?! WOW so cute. I can't wait to cast this one on. THANK YOU!

How pretty. This is a very sweet cowl. I love the pattern on this cowl. It looks like it's very complicated,but in reality, it is very simple.i keep thinking how great it would be to make this in a really soft wool. Does anyone else agree?

Wow! Talk about a stunning pattern! I love that it is easy enough that a beginner can knit it but its final results make it look like an advanced pattern. The drape of this cowl is nice, but I don't think I will use a really bulky yarn to make it. I think I would prefer to try the pattern in a worsted weight and see how it knits up. I would like to wear it in the spring or fall and I don't want to look super bulky. I also think a lighter weight yarn would show of the gorgeous pattern more.

I like the way these pattern looks, i think its perfect for a beautiful skein that i have, but im concern that the gauge won't be correct because its not a chunky yarn, as a matter of fact it calls for a 4,5 to 5,5 needle (european measure), any suggestions on how can i make it work?

Knitting this pattern with a different kind of yarn just requires knitting yourself a small swatch to see how many stitches and rows you'll need to meet the gauge and then doing a little bit of math. So, based on the gauge in this pattern, the piece is 30" around and 9" tall, so however many stitches it takes to get to 1" in your swatch, multiply that by 30 for the CO amount, and however many rows it takes to get to 1", multiply that by 9 to get your height. Hope this helps!!

Im going to try it out, thank ypu very much jdscott 2942525 )

Looks ever so complicated to knit and totally sophisticated, but a pattern for beginners - love it. Shall encourage the girls to try it and shall make one for me for the style.
