Chain Link Cowl Knitting Pattern

Here’s another beginner friendly free knitting pattern for all my knitting friends.  This Chain Link Cowl knitting pattern features an easy chain link pattern, plus a scrumptious big yarn, and a really easy seam to finish it off.

Don’t be deterred by the idea of a new stitch, after all, it’s all just knits and purls.  In this Chain LInk pattern, the knits and purls are alternated just so, and the result is quite nice.

I personally am in love with all the cowl things these days, as I love not having to worry about what to do with the ends of a scarf.  Also, I am developing a wee bit of an obsession for infinity scarves, for the same reason ( not a huge fan of loose ends) plus I love the way the extra layers pile up around my face.
