Wellsley Cowl

A Free Knitting Pattern




The Wellsley Hat now has its best friend at its side. When designing these two best friends I actually started with the cowl, and made the hat second. I asked my Instagram friends which pattern they wanted to see first and they said the Hat so that is what I started with.

I feel that the Cowl is a little bit easier than the hat because you are not picking up new stitches anywhere. The thing that I love about this pattern is the versatility. It would be pretty easy to make it bigger or smaller to meet your needs, and again the yarn is just so super soft.

I usually have my patterns ready on Monday/ Tuesday but a lot of crazy has happened this week, and we are moving back to the States at the end of the month. I wanted to get this pattern out to you sooner rather than later so I can concentrate on getting everything packed up for the move. In the next coming weeks I'll be able to share more with you about where my family is headed and what we will be up to, but I'm excited to be starting this next chapter.
