Easy Lace Cowl Knitting Pattern With Tutorial

Sharing is caring!

The Cora Cowl is a great pattern for your next summer project. This pretty cowl pattern is knit in a sport weight cotton yarn that accents your warm weather wardrobe especially in bright colors.

I love a light infinity scarf for an accessory this time of year. Plus the lace pattern is easy to knit, even if you’re new to knitting. It’s a simple 4 row repeat which is a great choice for a relaxing evening.

The free pattern uses simple knitting techniques and includes a step by step video tutorial. Easy knits like this quick cowl are a great way to keep knitting all year!
