Zester Cowl


This cowl is knit in the round and features an open, mesh stitch pattern using sport-weight yarn on a larger needle. The easy stitch pattern makes for a nice, relaxing knit and tips are provided for how to easily adapt for a different yarn-weight. Additional tips I provide for this pattern are: gauge tips, video tutorial on the stitch pattern and how to read your knitting!

The size and drape of this cowl is perfect for Spring or warmer climates, when you want just a little something around your neck. It’s also a great way to add a little visual interest or pop of color to any outfit!
