Wanting to create patterns that help beginners add skills was the driving force behind this pattern – and like so many of my patterns, this is a great template to knit again and again adding your own flair.
Simple Ribbed Cowl is a great practical step to knitting and purling in one smaller and more achievable project.
Cowls are a great way to keep your neck and décolletage warm, with out the fuss of a scarf undoing. Cowls sit perfectly into the neckline of coats, and act like a higher neckline for sweaters. Plus you can snuggle your chin in!
Why Learn to Knit?
We know that what is going on in our world and in our communities is not easy at the moment – especially for those who are facing long stretches of isolation and uncertainty. But we also know that there is a simple and comforting way to turn the unexpected time at home into a wonderful opportunity to knit, become creatively active and bring some focus and calm to your day. So we encourage you to pick-up sticks again, to teach your family, and to learn yourself if you haven’t yet had the chance.
We encourage you to stay home, stay calm and stay healthy. We hope where possible you can use your time for good, perhaps less digital and more mindful. Focus on healthy, engaging activities and learnings … and we wish you all the best during this stressful time.
