Free Cowl Knitting Pattern

This easy-to-knit cowl was inspired by the cowl worn by Claire from the popular Starz TV series Outlander. I've been a long-time fan of the Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon, and so I was super excited when I heard that Starz TV was making an adaptation of it. I knew I had to try and make my own version of the cowl as soon as I laid eyes on it. Here is the result of that effort.

Finished size: about 8" (20 cm) high and 52" (130 cm) circumference length

Materials: Lamb's Pride Bulky by Brown Sheep Company super bulky yarn (85% wool/15% mohair) 125 yards (114 m) / 113 gr - 2 skeins

Needles: US 19 (15 mm) straight needles

Gauge is not important.


The cowl is knitted using 2 strands of yarn.

Cast on 16 sts. Knit all rows until the length of the piece is 52" (130 cm). Bind off.
Sew the short sides together.
