It’s also a great way to use up those odd skeins of heavier weight yarns. The pattern includes tips on customizing the size of your cowl. Please note that changing the size will also alter the amount of yarn required.

This cowl can be knit in a variety of yarns and weights at different gauges. Feel free to experiment! The smaller cowl uses an aran weight yarn, shown in Blue Sky Alpacas Extra, is knit with larger needles and gauge making it a super quick knit.
