A Simple braided cowl is todays first Free Pattern Friday post.
The Braided Cable beanie is one of my absolute favorite beanie patterns.
At the beginning of the year, I participated in Ashley of @acraftyconcept yearly Beanie swap and I not only created a colorway for my Beanie Buddy Taylor of @taylorlynncrochet but I wanted to send more than just the beanie.
And so this Simple Braided Cowl was born!
The pattern is absolutely beginner friendly.
It uses less than 1 skein of DK weight yarn
There is one braid that uses the same technique as laid out in the BCB pattern by Casey and the rest of the body is stockinette with some ribbing at the top and bottom!
An easy make for quick gifts or to stash bust! Pattern is written in adult size but can be easily adjusted to any size by decreasing the total number of stitches in even numbers.
Gauge here isn’t super important. My recommendation is to try and get within a few stitches. 1 or 2 either more or less isn’t going to be crucial as this is a loose fitting cowl.
I hope you enjoy the pattern!
