Begbie Cowl

The Begbie Cowl is a fun and fast knit, perfect for gift knitting or adding a splash of colour to your own wardrobe. Lacy ribbing in a thick single ply creates a light accessory that is soft and warm. Loop it around twice for a loose fit that protects the back of your neck but doesn’t make you too toasty. Double it up and wear it snug like a key hole scarf for those particularly cold days. The pattern includes two styles of finishing, both of which can be worn in many different ways.
