Basket Weave Cowl Pattern

 
I designed this Basket Weave Cowl ages ago!  I'm talkin' years!  Super easy using fat yarn and large needles, but I never got around to writing the pattern.  I get asked about it every time I wear it.  Many are fellow knitters/crocheters and a few non yarny types.  I managed to eek out the pattern just as the year is about to end.  


Perfect for all body types.  One size fits all.  If you are petite, like my daughter (above), or tall and "fluffy" like me, you can knit and wear this.  

 
Knit in the round, it's just a simple knit and purl pattern.  If you have not tried knitting in the round, this pattern is great place to start.  Light colored yarn allows the basket weave pattern to shine!  Cinch it up to keep your neck warm or.....


bring it down over your shoulders.  This way would look stunning over your coat or jacket!  

You need:
 needles in size US 13 32" circs
2 skeins of super bulky weight (6) yarn
one stitch marker
tapestry needle

You can find the pattern in my Etsy shop



or


Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Yarn tip:
Having trouble seeing the stitches when using black yarn?  Lay a white pillowcase or dishtowel across your lap.
