The Cosmopolitan Cowl is a warm winter accessory that satisfies your quick and cozy knitting desires without sacrificing style or comfort. Using 2 skeins of your favourite colour of Cadena bulky, this cowl is the perfect accessory for chilly days out in the city.
Worked in the round from the top down, the Cosmopolitan cowl combines ribbing and a few basic cables for style and shape.
