A Chunky Moebius Cowl - an easy chunky knit free pattern

So excited to share this free cowl pattern with you all. Here it is on Ravelry, if you prefer. Let me tell you–it is cozy! It’s made with super-bulky wool so it knits up in a flash! The fabric is a alternate rib pattern, which, I think, provides a rich texture.
I made it with three skeins of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick on size 15 needles. I’m going to start to sound like I’m promoting them, which I’m not. Well, I am, but not officially. I wish they had given me all this yarn for free :). Anyway, if you wait for the right coupon or sale at Joann’s, you can load up on it. It is really versatile and comes in all sorts of colors. This is part of my 6 Easy Chunky Knit series, which will have more free patterns coming up in the next few months. Click on the photo below to visit the gallery of projects.

I’ve been knitting this cowl at my knitting classes at Common Threads. I think they have really enjoyed knitting this up for themselves, friends and family. Again, you can download the pattern on Ravelry or from my google file viewer, which comes up as a low-res version, but prints full-res. I think this makes a fabulous gift and its not too late in the season to whip it up for someone, or yourself, who has a right to be ultra cozy!

And, if you are so inclined to return some love for all the goodies I provide you here on the blog, I’d be ever so grateful if you voted for me in the Top 25 Creative Mom Blogs over at Circle of Moms. No logging in necessary – only clicking on a thumb’s up and you’re done. I think I’m in the teens currently, so thanks to all those that have voted so far!

My hubby is out of town this weekend so I’m running solo with the kids. Wish me much patience and happy laughter. Joyful knitting folks!
