Drawbridge is featured in Westknits Book Two, available here.

A drawstring adds an updated look to this simple cowl. Choose between the hemmed or scalloped version, both worked in two different yarns. Drawbridge would make an excellent quick gift and the stockinette stitch allows color and texture to shine.
