We love plaid, and a plaid cowl is the perfect accessory for any season! Knit in the round alternating between 3 colors. The result: chic. Choose bright bold colors, soft neutrals or a traditional palette - anything goes. Knit with chunky yarn, this cowl will knit up in no time! Brave Cowl is worked in garter stitch in the round, weaving in the vertical contrast decorative stitches as you knit!
