Cowl with Optional Drawstring and Trim
One day a decade ago, when I was a proofreader with a long commute, I wore a sheer blouse and a light blazer to the office so I could leave straight from it for a fancy date. By lunch, the weather had turned for the worse, so I borrowed yarn and needles from my work in progress and, during my downtime, knit a loose turtleneck dickey based on the traditional Icelandic yoked (Lopi) sweater. It was the first prototype of my cowl. -- description from Loop-d-Loop, pg. 21 (pattern on pg. 42)
