I’m happy to say, the Brainless Cowl is just that, brainless. I was looking for a way to use up some of my many skeins of handspun yarn, and sometimes I could knit on autopilot while I read a book. Hence, the Brainless Cowl, a giftable project you can complete in an evening while sitting in front of movie or reading a book.
This cowl is simplicity itself. For the cowl pictured, I cast on 80 stitches on a set of US 10, 16 in circular needles, and I knit for 5 rounds, purled for 5 rounds, alternating as I went, ending on a knit set, and bound off loosely when I ran out of my skein of worsted weight handspun yarn.
This pattern is very easy to adapt to any weight yarn. If you are using fingering weight, go down to a US size 6 needle, and increase your stitch count to 120. If you want a longer cowl, kust add more stitches.
I hope you enjoy this fast, stress free knit.
