An easy, entertaining knit, Alewives Cowl features panels of texture stitches that alternate rhythmically around the cowl. Worked in the round, the pattern is written for two sizes: a shorter single loop, and a long loop that can be worn as an infinity scarf or doubled around the neck for extra warmth.
The pattern is available individually, or as part of an ebook collection containing both the Alewives Hat and Cowl.
