Knitting: Arm Knit Child's Cowl (Tutorial)

Have you tried arm knitting an infinity cowl yet? You have to...! I keep thinking of other possibilities for this and thought I'd share one of them with you today (warning: there may be more)... arm knit child's cowl. 

As you can see, it's smaller than the original. It loops just once around the neck, so no infinity twist.

To make it, follow the original tutorial for the technique but change up the pattern a bit:

Arm Knit Child's Cowl Pattern
  1. Working with two strands together, cast on 9 stitches.
  2. Knit every row for 10 rows.
  3. Bind off all stitches.
  4. Seam cast-on and bound-off edges together to form a  loop.
  5. Weave in ends.

That should stretch nicely over your girl's head. Mine have loved theirs! So easy to wear. Audrey wore this all day to school--not just to and fro. That made me happy. I've had fun picking out yarn with them--the younger two opted for purple. That color seems to be the family favorite.

Love the child's knit cowl. Just wish you had posted a photo of the cowl only or one of your daughter from the back. I try really hard not to "pin" photos of anyone's children.
