Free Pattern: Big Fat Cowl

Big Fat Cowl Pattern

I was wanting to make one of these for a while and am glad I finally did. This pattern is really easy but I did find it a little time consuming none the less the outcome it beautiful! I also really loved working with this Lion Brand's Wool Ease Wool, I love the texture and the colour. Hope you enjoy!Size US 15 circular needle
Darning Needle
Cast on 80 stitches, join with the circular needles and begin knitting in the round.
Rows 1-12 Knit all stitches.

Row 13 *Knit 3, Knit 2 together. *Repeat pattern until row is complete.

Rows 14-25 Knit all stitches.

Row 26 *Knit 4, Knit 2 together. *Repeat pattern until row is complete.

Rows 27-60 Knit all stitches. You can keep knitting to make the cowl as long as you desire.

Cast off loosely and sew in ends of yarn, I don't recommend blocking this as it will take away from the natural shape and roll at the bottom so block with caution.

1 ball of Lion Brand's Wool Ease thick and quick, colour I used is Snapdragon.

Oh and yes this is an adult sized cowl my little guy wanted to try it on so I snapped a photo of him wearing it!


  1. I love it thanks! I hav e a few balls of that yarn! He is adorable, your little model! Denise


  2. Just an FYI, your RSS link above is misspelled - should be "subscribe" of course, not "subsribe." HTH.

  3. Love this pattern! I found you when looking for a cowl pattern to make. I will be trying this sometime soon. Your little boys is adorable!


  4. I think it looks quite cute on little MR! :) love this and hoping to knit up a few. I have NEVER used circular needles - any better than another(I think there were plastic, bambo, etc etc) or are all the same?

  5. This pattern is so cute! I'm just a bit confused about row 13 & 26- "knit 4, knit 2 together." Help? :)

  6. I think this pattern would look great with a k2,p2 design. Or, with a k1,p1 ribbing of 2" at the neck edge, for a turn down, finished look.
