The techniques used within the Perfectly Amiable Cowl pattern are adventurous beginner friendly. The cowl uses knits, purls, and slip stitches to create borders of ribbing and a beautiful colorwork canvas between. Read more about the knitting techniques here.
As designed, the cowl uses 2 (100-gram) skeins of DK weight (one for the main color and one for the contrasting color), and depending on the size you make, you can knit two cowls by swapping the MC and CC. Learn more about the yarn requirements here.

Wearing the Shawl
The Perfectly Amiable Cowl is a versatile knit perfect for spring and fall weather. You can wear it with a coat on a chilly day and pull it up over your mouth and chin for a bit of added warmth.
Or, if it's a bit warmer, you can wear it more as an accessory! Looking for a little added warmth and thickness? Tuck in the top ribbing for a double-thick layer of fabric around your neck!
The pattern includes three sizes, so you can make one of each for more fit options, or just make your favorite size. The sample to the right is the medium circumference with the large length. The sample with purple for the main color is the small size.
More information coming soon!
So sit back and enjoy this fun, easy-to-memorize, and addicting knit.
Knitting the Shawl
The Perfectly Amiable Cowl is a perfect knit for an adventurous knitter interested in learning how to knit a cowl in the round with colorwork. This is in part because the cowl uses mosaic colorwork, with just one color at a time!
The design uses knits, purls, and slip stitches worked in the round. The pattern includes linked video tutorials for all of the stitches used in the pattern plus a video for mosaic knitting.
All of my patterns come with clear, step-by-step (written and charted) instructions that walk you through the pattern with confidence. I am also available for pattern support if you have questions.
