Knitting Pattern PDF for a Knitted Cowl that can be worn in a variety of ways. Pull it down over the arms to feel snug, warm, safe and enclosed. Pull up over the head as well, or just wear it as a scarf or cowl round the neck to jazz up an outfit. 
 
The cowl can be worked in any yarn, but I have made it using 100% cotton which is super child friendly.

This pattern is one of a collection of sewing and knitting patterns created especially for children with sensory processing disorder. See more on my website at www.ruthmaddockmakes.com
