Garter Stitch Cowl Scarf Pattern

My Garter Stitch Cowl Scarf is an easy and simple knit that’s great for the beginner knitter and fun for the more advanced as well.  Knit it up in an afternoon and stay cozy in those cold winter months.  The garment is knit flat and then seamed; however, if you’d like to knit it in the round, just modify garter stitch for knitting in the round.  You can wear it long or double it up for a chunky cowl.
