Cozy Winters Cowl Knitting Pattern: Yarn Recommendations

Updated: Oct 29, 2020

Fallen in love with the Cozy Winters Cowl knitting pattern but have no idea what yarn to use? Continue reading for color recommendations using Polka Dot Sheep yarn (the yarn that I used), for affordable yarn recommendations, and for a list of resources to search for other yarns that will work for the pattern!


Cozy and lightweight, the Cozy Winters Cowl is a simple to knit and simple to wear cowl. It features a faded texture that is most dense at the bottom of the cowl.


I designed the cowl using Polka Dot Sheep’s cozy Stumptown DK weight yarn in the Night King colorway. It creates a lovely palette of whites, grays, and blues: precisely the colors of a snowstorm! The cowl looks great in most solid, tonal, and variegated yarns.

I used Night King for my main pattern sample.


I also knit up a second sample using Cedar Island.


Polka Dot Sheep Colors


I really think you could select any colorway from Polka Dot Sheep's lineup, and this cowl would look lovely! I've selected a handful of colors to give a sample of colors that I would pair with the Cozy Winters Cowl pattern. Note that the texture won't stand out as much with the yarns with multiple colors, but as you can see with my Night King sample, it still looks lovely!
