  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Choose four colors of Aran weight yarn and fade them together for this beginner-friendly cowl pattern. The cowl is knit flat and then seamed together at the end for an infinity-style cowl. The waves are created with yarn over increases and decreases framed by I-cord edges. The length is customizable, so you can also knit this pattern with DK or worsted weight yarn. Enjoy this cozy and warm winter accessory!
