Lovely Ribbed Cowl in Worsted Twist


Our Lovely Ribbed Cowl just got lovelier! Knit up in Purl Soho's Worsted Twist, this wonderfully uncomplicated cowl is the perfect stage for our newest yarn. Worsted Twist is a gorgeous 100% merino wool that knits up with crisp definition and classic simplicity. Plus, it's incredibly soft and cozy, just what you need in a cold autumn breeze!

With the same easy-as-pie pattern as the original, this is a great project for beginners; for people who are a little rusty after a summer of gardening instead of knitting; and even for die-hard knitters who love a mental break!

    I really want to make this…

    This is just what I've been looking for! If I wanted to make this for my 6yr old, how should I decide what the circumference measurement should be, instead of the 18"?

    Hi Millie-

    We think 16" in circumference should do the trick. Cast on 136sts and work the pattern the same.

    Thank you!

    Hi Annhb-

    Yes, the gauge is correct but please note that the gauge is in the rib pattern unstretched.

    Thank you!
