Item details

The infamous Outlander Cowl - a great bulky cowl pattern that's versatile and cozy! I decided I wanted something simple, beginner friendly, and fast. Fast was really something I was after. This pattern fits the bill – it is very simple, works up fast – and best of all, it’s gorgeous. Squishy and drapey, the bulky yarn really shines.

Great for beginners or experienced knitters, this project is a hit for holiday gifts, too.

For a classic Claire style, pick a heathered grey yarn.

This knit pattern can be worked up in an evening while watching TV!

PLEASE NOTE: This listing is strictly for a pattern, not a finished product.

Samples are made with Loops & Threads Charisma in Forest (green) and a mix of Black Tweed & Nordic (orange/blue/grey sample).

All cowls are roughly 60" - 65" (152 - 165 cm) long, and about 6" (15 cm) wide. Sizes will vary slightly depending on the yarn colour chosen.

Supplies Needed:

Yarn: 200 yards of bulky weight yarn. Sample used Loops & Threads Charisma in “Forest”, 2 skeins.

Needle(s): US 35 (19 mm)

Notions: Optional buttons (sample used 2 but 3 would work better), sized 1 1/8” (28 mm) or larger as needed.

Note: This cowl is worked flat with two strands held together to create a super soft, squishy end project.

Difficulty Level:
Beginner: worked flat, simple stitches, very beginner friendly.
