Knit Regan Cowl Pattern & Tutorial

Updated: Apr 19, 2019

Today's free pattern & tutorial is on the Regan Cowl. It matches the Knit Regan Beanie which is written for a fitted or slouchy style. Earlier this summer, I decided to include more multi-colored designs in my patterns. I don't like to switch colors too often. I want my patterns ot be easy for beginners and quick for the seasoned knitters. I feel like I have met that goal for some time now so I wanted to start including more complex (intermediate) patterns.

The Regan cowl isn't too hard and with a full video tutorial, I'm confidant that even a beginner will be able to knit this pattern!

This free pattern is for the Regan Cowl in Child & Adult Sizes.

Please visit any of my shops if you would like to purchase the ad-free PDF Beanie pattern in a convenient tri-fold format for on-the-go Knitting. PDF Pattern comes in sizes Baby (Toddler, Child, Adult).
