Sparkling Snowfall Cowl

Updated: Jan 12, 2023

Subtle sparkle & a simple stitch combine to make a luxurious addition to your wardrobe.

Reminiscent of the way snow sparkles in the sunshine, this cowl has a subtle glint of sparkle. Knit flat & consisting of knit & purl stitches, this cowl is simple to knit, but also engaging.


I saw this yarn with the subtle sparkle & I knew I had to make something special with it. It's very understated, but just gives it that little glint of something special.

When working with a beautiful yarn, its sometimes best to leave the stitch simple to let the yarn shine. I kept this in mind when deciding to knit this cowl & I think the results are perfect!

The simple 4 row repeat that is super easy to memorize makes for a super squishy fabric and the mix of knit & purl stitches showcases the sparkle to perfection!

The skills needed for this cowl are basic knit & purl stitches. This makes it both perfect for beginner & seasoned knitters alike. I did, however, leave a few decisions up to you as the knitter.


I give you the option to use whatever cast on & bind off/join method you choose.

A provisional cast on allows you to graft the ends together at the end giving you a seamless look or join the two ends together with a three needle bind off like I did in the sample.

If you choose not to do this, that's ok! Any cast on & join you are comfortable will work! The knit/purl stitches do a good job at hiding the join.


The other option you have is twisting the cowl before sewing the ends together. Placing a twist will create more of a mobius shape in the cowl. The sample cowl has a twist. The choice is a personal preference, some prefer the way it lays while wearing.
