A simple post stitch pattern creates this simple, sophisticated, warm and thick cowl. This versatile cowl can be worn around the neck, over the shoulders, over the head, or even as a skirt! This is a perfect pattern to keep you cozy as temperatures drop.

This is an intermediate level project because of the post stitches, but it is suitable for an adventurous beginner!
