Ombre cowl pattern (a quick, chunky knit) | Free pattern

Sometimes, and especially for gifting, a chunky knit is just the best. I’m also crazy about ombre knits, and with a huuuuge amount of elle gold in my stash an ombre cowl for my brother’s girlfriend seemed like a great, very possible, idea.

And here's the lovely Dayle modelling the cowl for me

I was inspired by the look of the Polar Infinity Scarf pattern from Etsy, and developed a super simple pattern to replicate the look.

YOU WILL NEED

  • 20mm needles
  • 2 x black elle gold
  • 2 x titanium elle gold
  • 2 x pepper elle gold
  • 2 x ivory elle gold
  • 2 x lily elle gold

TO MAKE

C/on 20sts, using 2 strands at the same time. This is why you need 2 balls in each colour. If you know how to, do a provisional c/on in black – this way you can have a seamless join when the pattern is finished.

Row 2: p

Follow this stitch pattern throughout, and follow the colour pattern below.

Rows 7 – 12: black & titanium
