Call it a circle, infinity, loop or cowl scarf, one thing is certain, it’s definitely the time for knitting them! Cowls are the stylish accessory that will ward off the cold and bring cheer and warmth to the folks on your holiday gift list.

Our Zig Zag Zig cowls in Debbie Bliss’s Winter Garden use a simple, graphic lace stitch. There are 1 and 2 skein versions, both of which knit up in a jiffy!

Winter Garden yarn is a departure for Debbie Bliss. Unlike her usual smooth yarns for classic knitting, Winter Garden is a highly textured, colorful bulky blend of merino, baby llama, linen, and silk.

Winter Garden is soft to the touch, and feels fantastic to knit. I absolutely love the tiny flecks of contrasting colors spun into the yarn. The lace stitch keeps the project interesting and the one skein version knit up in just one evening!

Give our Zig Zag Zig Cowl a try using our free pattern. We used the Jade colorway for our short cowl and Gold & Copper for the long version. Enjoy!
