You’ll love this warm and cozy geometric cowl knitting pattern!
How many of you are beginning knitters, friends? I have been knitting for about 15 years and I’ve moved on to complicated patterns but I definitely remember what it was like when I was first starting. I, like most people, I think, made a lot of scarves. And small baby blankets. Anything that was rectangular and either garter or stockinette stitch. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It’s important to practice counting and tension and everything. I’ve taught a handful of people to knit and that’s the kind of project I always start them on. But that’s also one of the reasons I wanted to share this pattern with you guys today. Because I remember, when I was knitting those basic things, I would sometimes feel a little disappointed if they looked too homemade or too basic. Do you know what I mean?
Well, the Avery Cowl knitting pattern from Melissa LaBarre for Quince & Co. looks super complicated. And I loooooove the geometric pattern! But you know what? It’s only knit and purl stitches. That’s it. No yarnovers, no fancy stitches. Just knitting and purling and some careful counting. So actually it’s a really good beginner project. It is knit in the round but it’s not complicated and if you just want to practice basic stitches and basic counting and/or chart reading, this is the pattern for you! And you end up with something that looks way more complicated than it is! It’s a win-win! And hey, are you more of an intermediate knitter like me? This a great relaxing project that’s fun to knit and stays interesting but it’s not so challenging that you can’t zone out to netflix while you’re working on it! It’s not a freebie, but at only $5, it’s totally worth it. Find the pattern here and happy knitting!
