    5 Super Chunky Cowls to Knit


    I love knitting cowls; they are a great way to accessorise an outfit especially during the colder months where you need to wrap up and keep warm!

    One of my all-time favourite yarns for knitting cowls is Mrs Moon Plump; a blend of merino and baby alpaca this is a super chunky roving yarn. Knitted up Plump creates a lightweight but warm fabric making it ideal for keeping out the winter chill!

    Here are my favourite cowl patterns to knit in a super chunky yarn like Mrs Moon Plump.


    1. Fisherman's Rib Cowl in Four Gauges

    Fisherman’s Rib is a simple cowl. The fisherman's rib stitch pattern creates a cosy fabric with unmatched warmth and volume; it's perfect for knitting in Mrs Moon Plump, shown here in the colour Gooseberry Fool. 


    2. Toffee Cowl

    Super simple and quick to knit up, this lovely soft cowl twists to fit snuggly around the neck to keep you warm. The clever zig-zag pattern is reversible, so there is no wrong side! You can download Toffee Cowl free when you purchase the yarn from our store.


    3. Frost at Midnight Cowl

     Frost at Midnight Cowl is by designer Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade. A quick knitting project this cowl needs just two skeins of Plump and can easily be finished in a couple of hours making it a great last minute gift knit.  


    4. Marion

    Marian is a free pattern on Ravelry. Easy, quick knitting this is an ideal project for a beginner looking to learn to knit in the round. You could also try casting Marian on in Mrs Moon Podgy.


    5. Varm 

    Varm by Woolfolk

    A twisting cable sandwiched between garter stitch, Varm is knit flat beginning with a provisional cast on and then joined to create the cowl. The cable is pretty in reverse too! To knit in Mrs Moon Plump you'll need just two skeins.
