Take campfire warmth with you wherever you go with this easy to make cowl.

Cowl can be worn wrapped twice or simply folded and tucked in. The look of embers as well as the texture is achieved through a simple drop stitch pattern which makes it possible to get dramatic results with little effort, as you are using only one color per round!

Mit den kühleren Herbsttagen kommt das ideale Wetter für Lagerfeuer.
Die glühenden Kohlen (Glowing Embers) sind in diesem Halswärmer durch ein einfaches Stichmuster dargestellt, wobei immer nur eine Farbe pro Runde gebraucht wird. Das Muster ist daher schnell gemeistert und kann auch schon von neueren Strickerinnen erfolgreich gewagt werden.
Der Cowl kann doppelt oder einfach getragen werden, je nach Lust und Laune oder dem Wärmebedüftnis.

Pattern is easy even for a newer knitter to master.
