This scrumptious cowl not only lends itself to addictive “squishing,” but is fun to make and easy to modify for adding colors or using different yarns. The pattern is fun and relatively simple, and the resulting cowl makes an irresistible gift!
Knit with Madelinetosh Vintage on a size 9 needle, the cowl is approximately 40” in circumference (so approximately 3.6 st per inch in pattern). Yarn and needle variations will result in adjustments to size.

For cold weather, worsted weight is perfect!
To create a lighter weight version, go with a plant blend in a DK, like Cobasi. The finished cowl will be stretchy and have less bulk; it will be perfect for a warmer weather accessory that you can wear in spring and fall. Try it in linen, or turn it into a stash-buster and use odds and ends.
Want to go a step further? Try it in a fingering or sport weight for year-round wearability. Yardage will vary, and you may wish to go down a needle size (or three). Eyrie is very flexible and looks great at any gauge.
This design is fun knit in a solid, but it lends itself to the playful use of stripes, too. Unleash your inner artist and have some fun, and use #eyriecowl and #oliveknits on Instagram so we can see your creation!
Note: Some yarns will want to roll on the edges more than others – in most cases this isn’t anything to fuss over – go with it!
