The Besotted cowl is a delicious, sumptuous and absolutely adorable winter accessory. Snuggle up against the cold with this bold stranded colorwork design - at once modern and traditional and perfect for whatever color combination you like best this year!

Besotted is knit in a DK-weight, drapey yarn that creates a fabric both luxurious and hardy; this cowl will feel like a dream but keep you toasty warm.

Finished size:
28” / 71 cm in circumference
10.5” / 27 cm in height
(note: The circumference of this cowl is easily adjusted and is indicated in the pattern.)

Pattern as written requires two contrasting colors of Shilasdair Luxury DK, 1 skein each. If substituting yarn, try to choose a wool-based yarn that contains some amount of a very soft, drapey fiber like alpaca, silk or cashmere. The wool will help keep your colorwork even while the additional fibers make this cowl the luxury accessory you deserve!
