Last-Minute Cowl Project using Rowan Cocoon

Last-Minute Cowl Project using Rowan Cocoon

"Right. Now."

It’s not just a name—the Last-Minute Cowl will knit up right quick! Use large needles (US 17, in fact!), a bulky-weight yarn, and choose a stitch from the free pattern—mistake rib, seed stitch, or two-by-two rib. The results are gorgeous and incredibly warm. Knit one to give, give one to knit, or treat yourself.

We’ve doubled Rowan Cocoon for a cowl that’s lofty, soft, and easy to knit. This bulky-weight fiber is a roving-style blend of merino and mohair. Warm and bouncy with a subtle, silky luster, Cocoon gives great stitch definition and is unbelievably snuggly.

See the Free Pattern tab for our Last-Minute Cowl pattern. Then choose your color below--you'll need 2 skeins. You can even get creative and pick two different colors for a fun marl!
