Curl up in this plush, oversized cowl on chilly days. Furrow’s simple stitches make for easy knitting, and a gentle bell shape — achieved by decreases within the moss stitch segments — makes styling effortless. Knit to 18″ tall, the cowl drapes and folds elegantly, but it can be shortened if you prefer less volume or wish to use a smaller amount of yarn. Pair it with a Furrow Hat for a matched set of accessories.

This pattern was published as part of Jared Flood’s first print book, WOOLENS. You can purchase all patterns in this collection as an ebook at brooklyntweed.com.
