Super Bulky Basket Weave Cowl - Free Knitting Pattern

Winters can be rough in New England. You can count on it being windy, cold, and snowy. And did I say cold? The kind of cold that makes it hard to get out of bed, or miserable to get out of the hot shower. We just had 12” or so of snow dumped on us, and tomorrow the high temperature is going to be four degrees. Four! With a low of -3. Do you have winters similar to my own? Maybe it gets even colder where you live…I’m so sorry. Let’s not let winter be the boss of us. Let’s go outside. After we knit.

This isn’t your light and fluffy, drapey cowl, but more akin to armour to protect you from the cold. Scrunch it down around your neck, or stand it up stiff to cover your mouth and nose while your breath provides a little extra warmth. If you are a knitter AND a skier/snowboarder, you are in luck, because this is the essential over-layer. It’s all about the layers! Stay cozy!
