25 Hearts is a cowl with a heart pattern on moss stitch background. Made in worsted weight yarn (Malabrigo Rios), it is warm and makes an interesting and fast knit. The cowl is shaped by changing needle size: it is wider around the shoulders and smaller at the top. The size can be easily adjusted.
The instructions are given in both chart and written format.
