Billow is one of my personal favs, perhaps because its worked in all knit stitches. No purls in sight!

Its a loose fitting, drape-y cowl that will billow around your neck (thank-you to Celticflame99 who helps me name my designs!). It can be made in any two colors of aran weight yarn. The cowl is made from the neck edge down and gets gently wider as you knit.

Btw, after one of my test knitters made hers is a long colorway yarn I just HAD to make one like that for myself. I highly recommend it. Go with two wildly different colors in that kind of yarn (like Noro) and watch the crazy color work form up under your hands.
