Unforgettable Smocked Cowl or Scarf

This cowl (or scarf) is quick to knit with only 1 skein of yarn. The beautiful colors of the yarn make it perfect to wear with any outfit. Wear the cowl in a long loop or double it up for a close-fitting cowl to keep your neck warm!


The pattern includes written instructions, along with a chart for the stitch pattern used. A written and photo tutorial is included in the pattern for the smocking stitch that is used.


Also included in the pattern are written instructions, as well as a chart, for grafting the beginning and end (in pattern) to form the cowl. Knowledge of grafting is suggested to knit the smocked cowl. If you’re unfamiliar with grafting, the smocked scarf can be knit without grafting instead!


If a longer and/or wider cowl/scarf than 5” wide x 36” circumference/long is desired, 2 skeins of yarn may be used instead of one.


I hope you enjoy knitting this fun cowl or scarf!
