DIY: Cowl Knitting Pattern Roundup

The temperature has been dipping dangerously low lately and you know what that means - knitting season. Yup, as soon as the sun sets this time of year, I want to be on my couch cozied up and it's more fun if my hands are busy. This year's obsession is cowls. I want to make one or maybe a hundred, so I've rounded up my favorite cowl knitting patterns and will choose one (or two) from amongst them. Your input is welcome.

Asterisque Cowl by Phydeaux Designs - $5.50
Love the fact that this one can be worn a number of different ways - cross between a cowl and a scarflet.

Bridget Cowl by AtelierTPK - $6.50
It was named after me, how could I resist? And it looks lovely and drapey.

Chunky Mobius Cowl by PixieBell - $3.00
Looks super cozy and its the same pattern throughout. Can't be too hard, right?

Cobblestone Cowl by Topher&Co - $3.00
Digging on the bold graphic X's that are used to connect the sides together.

Looks totally up my alley, chunky, comfy and dare I say easy?

The lacy look seems very feminine and pretty.

Holy Cowl by Purls of Wisdom - Free
This cowl is a little longer than the rest, plus she has a free wristlet pattern to match.

Burly Spun Grey Owl Cowl by Loop Knit Lounge - Free
This one is definitely burly and maybe a bit more advanced, but how cool is that!?!

Uber comfy and can be worn in one long strand or doubled up.

Another wraparound cowl, but this one needs a big button. Super cute though.
