  • This is a PDF knitting pattern

    Play with fun bubble stitches to knit this warm and cozy cowl. The cowl is knit in the round and then seamed together to create a thick plush tube. Choose between a hooded cowl that starts with little bubbles and increases into big bubbles or select the simple infinity cowl style.

    DK or worsted weight yarns create this fun-to-knit winter accessory.

    DK or worsted weight

    1 skein of each color

    The sample is a multi-color version. I used less than one skein of each color and most colors used leftover bits of yarn. If you have six full skeins of DK weight yarn, that should be plenty to knit both size variations of this cowl.

    Hooded Cowl
    Approximately 775yds / 709m total

    If you are knitting a six-color sample of the hooded cowl style, you will need approximately 129yds / 118m or a bit less of each color.

    Infinity Cowl
    Color A – 250yds / 229m
    Color B – 250yds / 229m
    Color C – 250yds / 229m
    Color D – 250yds / 229m
    Color E – 250yds / 229m
    Color F – 250yds / 229m

    US 6 / 4mm circular in 24” / 60cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

    1 stitch marker, tapestry needle

    22 sts & 32 rows = 4” / 10cm in bubble stitch
    Aim for a crisp dense gauge so the bubble fabric is structured and not too loose.
