{FREE} CHEVRON : Cowl Knitting Pattern

knit chevron cowl on a fur blanket

Grab this FREE Chevron Cowl Knitting Pattern. This cowl is knit flat, on the short rows, like a scarf and then sewn together to make it a circle.

It’s easy to customize the length to fit your style. You can make it longer or shorter to wrap once or twice. I knit mine super long so I could wrap it around twice.

It does curl a little bit on the edges, which I like because it hides them. :) If it curls a lot, then you may want to use a larger needle size to get a more relaxed stitch.
