Free Crochet Pattern for Knit Look Ribbed Cowl!


Knit Look Ribbed Cowl by CrochetZone.comI work in an office environment where we exchange small gifts for Christmas. Most of my co-workers are women so this year I will be making lots of these Knit Look Ribbed Cowls. 

Heart Add to Ravelry

This crochet pattern works up so fast in a bulky weight yarn – under an hour – and I love the way the vertical ribs look. The ribs are very easy to make by working in “third” loop. If you need a little help figuring out where the third loop is, Moogly has an excellent tutorial and you can click HERE to see it. This cowl is designed to be a little wider at the bottom part so that it will lay nicely on the shoulders rather than bunch up like some squared off varieties. For a little extra flair I added the yarn tie but of course, that is optional.
