The Coffee Shop cowl is a beginner friendly pattern, designed to use just knit and purl stitches. Knit with soft DK yarn, the cowl is textured, reversible warm and lightweight - the perfect accessory for when you are out and about!
The easy to remember pattern repeats provide interest for established knitters, whilst a beginner knitter will find it an ideal project to practice knit and purl stitches.
