A simple slip stitch pattern cowl creates a waffle-like fabric for supple drape. This flexible pattern can be worked in four difference sizes using just one or 2 skeins of yarn. Use a DK or worsted weight yarn for a bright pop of color or grab 2 contrasting yarns and learn how to turn this slipped stitch pattern into a polka-dot inspired cowl. Deceptively simple, this cowl works up quickly for yourself. You’ll find yourself knitting this time and time again as a great gift.

Carolina Kidwell-Bozeman loves playing with fiber in all forms. There is nothing more satisfying to her than spreading the therapeutic, creative and joyous qualities inherent in knitting. Carolina has been knitting since the age of 9, and picked it back up in college where she benefited from the meditative process of knitting instead of focusing only finishing the project. In her own knitting she embraces playing with color and texture when choosing a pattern.
