This easy to make bold color-block scarf / cowl / hood is nothing more than a stockinette tube, knitted in a very large gauge making it super stretchy. It’s so stretchy, that if you pull it over your head like a turtleneck, it is transformed into a super soft cowl, with lots of interesting depth and texture. This surprisingly fun knit is sure to delight. The design is all about using color to make a statement, so get creative! The pattern includes suggestions for 4 expertly selected colorways as well.

Stretched long as for scarf: 6” wide and 66” long
Stretched wide as for cowl/hood: 24” circumference and approx. 30” long
