Closer is a cowl that drapes deeply at both front and back. It will keep the chill out over the lowest-cut neckline. You can make a statement piece by pairing it with some unique buttons. Using just 165 m / 180 yds of yarn, this is an ideal stash buster project. It is easy to make it larger or smaller, too!
Measurements are given in both centimeters and inches.
A toddler version is available here.
