braided cowl for kids


Today I have another guest post on The Purl Bee! Although it is hard to imagine, fall is right around the corner, and nothing beats a cozy hand knit cowl for keeping you warm. I particularly like cowls for kids; they look great and somehow seem easier to manage than a scarf.


This is a perfect project for a weekend away...it only takes one skein of yarn and only a few hours to knit. The chunky yarn and simple braid add lots of texture, and I just love Blue Sky Worsted with its subtle hand dyed variations and super soft touch!


This is a very simple pattern even if you have never knit a cable before. The kids were all fascinated to see how to knit a braid! The instructions along with how to photos are all on the Purl Bee in the Project Journal for the Cowl...you can find that HERE.


P.S. Although I designed this pattern with the boys in mind the cowl fits every member of the family. Adam has already put in a request for his!
