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.

Cowls & Infinity Scarves

Cowls and infinity scarves are not only perfect for the fall / winter transition – they are paramount in staying warm without completely undoing all the effort you put into controlling your hair.  Wearing one is like wearing an endless hug, and creating one for someone else, if pretty much on par with hero cookies.

Long & Unique Scarves

The rainbow scarf is my absolute favourite long scarf, and truthfully I can’t wait for winter to get here so I can pull it out of the closet and wear it everywhere.  The pattern for the dropped and found scarf by Jessie at Home is stunning, and so are the results!
