This bulky knit / chunky knit cowl knitting pattern is worked as a seamless knit on a circular needle. The childs cowl can be worn as a hood, a cape and a cowl. When pulled down over the shoulders it creates a tight wrap around which is warm snug and safe.
Please note this is a listing for the childs cowl knitting pattern not the finished cowl.
The cowl can be worked in any yarn, but I have made it using 100% cotton which is super soft and child friendly.
