Taha Moana Cowl Knitting Pattern

$12.00

Can you smell the sea breeze?

The Taha Moana Cowl is the sibling pattern to the Taha Moana Shawl. This was designed as an alternative to the 3/4 shawl as a yardage friendly version, plus is much quicker to knit up. Perfect for using up the little scraps of yarn hiding in your stash or the leftover yarn from the Taha Moana Shawl!

The cowl is first knit as a top-down triangular shawl, then joined together and worked in the round. A combination of increases (kfb and yo) and decreases (CDD) are worked to maintain the pointed tip, for the bandana type of look. As with the Taha Moana Shawl, you can choose whether to work the stripe lace section with three contrasting colors, two or just one!
