This is the updated version of my original Fibonacci Cowl pattern, which pulled over the head and fit close to the neck. As anyone with long, thick or curly hair knows…pulling anything over the head causes hair to become wild and out of control. My solution…knit a neck-warmer that buttons up the side, and/or a cowl that can be worn loose or worn doubled to keep the wind at bay (and the hair looking neat).

This pattern includes both the neck-warmer and the cowl, in either two-color Fibonacci stripe, or one-color textured stripe variations. The close-fitting neck-warmer uses six buttons (but could be knit in the round without buttons if you prefer), and uses two 50g balls of Berroco Blackstone Tweed or any aran weight yarn of at least 130yds. The longer cowl uses two balls of Blackstone Tweed for the one-color texture stripe version, and three balls for the two-color stripe version.

This pattern is available for individual sale, and as part of collection (including the hat and mittens) in e-book format. If you already purchased the individual pattern, and would like to purchase the e-book, the price of this pattern will be deducted from the cost of the collection during checkout.
