{FREE} HYGGE HIBERNATION : Cowl Knitting Pattern

Knit cowl on a fur blanket.

A while back I learned the Alternating Long Rib Knit Stitch on Day 44 of 100 Days of Knit Stitches, if you’re new here you can learn more about it on Day 1.

It’s a simple stitch with beautiful texture. I designed a hat with it, so I thought I’d make a cowl too.

It’s an easy pattern with simple stitches using super bulky yarn, so it knits up quick and there’s no blocking necessary! ;)
