I designed my first cowl, Rievaulx, during the early autumn. The weather here in Yorkshire was wonderful, with lots of sunny days and only a nip in the air. As a result, I wanted a fashionable cowl that wasn’t going to have me overheating.

Oh, what a difference a month makes! Suddenly there is less daylight than there is night, and there’s ice on the car in the morning. I need a cowl to keep me warm on a cold and frosty morning. So, I designed Cowl’d and Frosty Morning in Malabrigo Chunky to keep me warm when I need it most. The alternating bands of stockinette and seed stitch, as well as the thick wool and denser fabric, help the cowl stand up straight.

This cowl is easily adaptable to worsted weight wool or for a larger size. Notes about modifications can be found at the end of the pattern.
