Tessellated Cowl – Free Pattern!

Happy New Year!

I’ve been vacationing in Breckenridge and Lake Tahoe this winter, so I’ve had a lot of time to think about keeping warm. I was especially concerned with keeping my face warm on ski lifts, so I improvised this bulky, double-knit cowl while in Colorado before Christmas.

Swirl Cowl

I thought I’d share the pattern with you all. It’s a pretty simple double-knit tube — I recommend using the magic-loop method instead of using double-pointed needles, but either are fine.

    Thrilled to see Knitters for Kiva in your sidebar!!! My sons and I have been lending for the last few years. They donated their birthday money when they were only 7 and 8. They have helped 13 or 14 people with that $ so far. They just turned 12 and 13! I will be joining your team. Bernadette
