Turtleneck Knit Cowl

Posted: November 16, 2020 by admin

Welcome to the Turtleneck Knit Cowl knitting pattern! This is a collaboration with Clover USA and I’m always so honored to be a guest designer on their blog. The Turtleneck Knit Cowl is a knitting pattern for all skill levels and is a super fun stash buster for bulky yarn. I used less than 2 balls of hand-dyed yarn but you can use the fiber that works best for you. A note in using hand-dyed yarn, make sure you check the yardage and that you have enough yardage for what the pattern calls for. 

This pattern was inspired by my love of turtlenecks. Ever have the cutest shirt, sweatshirt, or sweater but you know your neck is going to get cold because a turtleneck is what you need. Well, I hope the Turtleneck Knit Cowl can help keep your neck warm while wearing that cute top! I love the ribbing and coziness that this design created as well as the option for layering.

I used my Takumi Combo Set in this pattern these are my go-to knitting needles. I love these smooth bamboo knitting needles and the points are sharp for using a variety of yarn.

I hope you love this fun and quick pattern! Please share with me on social media. You can follow me on Instagram HERE and on Facebook HERE! Tag me @pinkplumeriamaui and use #pinkplumeriamaui.
