Ganymede Cowl, Free Knitting Pattern + Video

The Ganymede Cowl is a lovely, beginner friendly project that is quick and easy to make!  Larger needles and chunky yarn make it extra cozy and quick as a wink to stitch up.  This cowl has a unique “V” shaped wrap construction too that is also very easy to do!

  1. Just a suggestion, please consider using a search bar on your website (unless I simply don't see it). I saw this pattern on your instagram page but could not find it even when I went to the knitting tab at the top of your blog. I enjoy your videos and crochet patterns.
