Easy Breezeway Cowl

By Andrea Guarino – Humbleworm

This simple infinity cowl works up quickly using around 300 yards of Sport, DK, Worsted, or Aran weight yarn. The Easy Breezeway Cowl is a great choice whether you’re a beginner looking to practice your knits and purls, or an advanced knitter seeking an easy tune-out-and-relax project.

Techniques: Long-tail CO, stretchy BO, K, P, Garter stitch (K first rnd, P second Rnd; repeat).


  • Yarn – At least 300 yards / 150 grams of Sport, DK, Worsted, or Aran weight yarn. I used a DK/Light Worsted yarn in colorway “En Plein Air” by Into The Warren. [Yardage/grams needed varies depending on yarn weight and desired scarf length and width.]
  • Needles – US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needles, 40 in. or size needed based on yarn weight and desired scarf length.
  • Stitch marker to mark beginning of round (BOR).
  • Tapestry/yarn needle for weaving in ends.
  • Notes: Wet block for best results. Scarf length is highly customizable; simply cast on (CO) additional stitches until you reach desired total length.

CO 180 stitches using the long-tail CO.

Join in the round, being careful not to twist.

Place marker for beginning of round.

Rows 1-2: Garter stitch (K rnd 1, P rnd 2)

Rows 3-5: Knit

Rows 6-8: Purl

Repeat Rnds 3-8 seven times, or until scarf reaches desired width. End after finishing the last knit row of a 3-row K repeat.


Leave 6 inch tail for finishing.

Weave in ends using tapestry needle.

All done!
