Easy Knit Cowl Pattern for Graduation Gift

Why do you knit? I can think of several reasons I knit. Today’s project (Knit Cowl) was hand knitted special for a niece graduating from high school. In the fall she will venture out on her own and attend college. They grow up so fast but we are so proud to see them become young adults. Knit Cowl: Drop Stitch Cowl free pattern - Grace Elizabeth's

Back to the project. I chose Abi Gregorio’s Drop Stitch Cowl pattern for ease and style. The super bulky yarn, Hometown USA, by Lion Brand was so soft and easy to use. The 100% Acrylic yarn will be easy for a college student to machine wash and dry.

Did I mention this was an easy, quick project?  I actually added a pattern repeat to make the cowl even more bulky. I used a full + partial skein of yarn. The pattern yardage is stated as 110yds/101m but the Hometown USA skein only has 81yds/74m. Will I make this again – YES! If you are interested – the pattern is free on Ravelry.  I would love to hear from you if you make this cowl…
