A quick and easy cowl knitted to the specifications for mariners to safely work on a ship in the winter. The 2x2 ribbing makes it fit all necks and the cowl can be made longer to cover the lower part of the face and ears if desired.

They ask that yarn be machine washable for ease of care on board ship so acrylics and wool/acrylic blends are best.
