If there’s a simpler way to make a cowl, we haven’t seen it! The Curling Cowl from Valley Yarns is just joined in the round and knit, knit, knit. The natural curling tendency and subtle pattern of Stockinette Stitch works perfectly with hand dyed yarns, like the Valley Yarns Northfield, that might look too busy in a more complex stitch pattern.

Yarn: 1 skein Valley Yarns Northfield Hand-Dyed color Strawberry Rhubarb (70% Merino/20% Baby Alpaca/10% Silk, 250g/620yds); One skein is sufficient to make two 40” x 10” cowls, or one 40” x 20” cowl
