Tapered Cowl Pattern

Tapered Cowl Pattern





The Design

“Shaped to keep you cozy.”

The long, slow shaping of this cowl begins with a wider base that slips as far over one or both shoulders as the circumference allows, while the narrower top end fills in the neck to keep you beautifully cozy.

We chose String Blossom, a cashmere blend, and Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca—both overflowing with next-to-the-skin softness—and knitted them on slightly smaller needles for dense, luxurious folds.

This two page pattern includes:

  • Color photography by the talented Jared Flood
  • Tips on how to swatch for fabric
  • Instructions for finishing and blocking your Cowl
