A cozy, unisex cowl to chase away the winter blues. Worked in a soft, tweedy yarn and a basic geometric pattern, this cozy cowl will keep you toasty warm. Brighten up a gloomy day by choosing a vibrantly coloured yarn in electric blue or sunny yellow.

Written to be worked on circular needles in the round, this cowl can easily be done using dpns or magic loop.

The circumference can be customized by adding/removing stitch repeats while the height can be adjusted by working an additional 16 or 32 rounds.

Pattern is 4 pages.
