When the weather gets cooler, it’s time to add some warm layering accessories to your wardrobe. Cowl patterns are a great way to fend off the first chill of winter because it’s a smaller, quicker project to work on, giving you something to wear sooner rather than later.

Cowl patterns also make incredibly versatile accessories: You’ll find cowls with hoods, cowls that hug your shoulders, cowls that wrap multiple times, etc.

Knitted cowls make a fantastic starting point to get creative with new pattern motifs and techniques. Create yourself an elegant lacy cowl to defend against the chill of late fall or early spring. A worsted or chunky cowl will bring you warmth through the cold darkest days of winter. No matter your style, a knit cowl is a stylish and sensible addition to every wardrobe.
