What is more fun to knit than a combination of pretty stitch patterns resulting in an ornamental cowl? Designed to be playful and use just one skein of Tibetan Singles, Heart Warmer is meant to be your go-to neck piece this winter and spring. Or even next :)

The pretty yarn I used can be found here, in Martin’s Lab shop.

Note on yardage: not all my testers used Tibetan Singles, some used smaller fingering weight skeins and completed the cowl successfully. If you wish to substitute the yarn, use fingering weight skeins with yardage no smaller than 440y and swatch. Or you can make each section a bit smaller. :) Happy knitting!
