Frances cowl is a oversized, full cowl that is cozy to wear and easy to knit up quickly. It uses less than 300 yards of bulky-weight yarn, features a little shaping (created by changing needle size) and an easy stitch pattern that is perfect for a little mindless knitting!
I used 3 skeins of Cascade’s Baby Alpaca Chunky - a perfect yarn for this kind of design because of the wonderful drape that alpaca has (and how soft it is next to the skin too!).
