Winter in Ohio can be…well…cold! This cowl is the companion piece to my Truth, Fallacies and Statistics Shawl Pattern and is a continuation of the “challenge” to design “naughty” pieces.

Starting from a provisional cast on then knit in the round, the piece is folded to form a doubly thick cowl to keep your neck warm on the coldest of Polar Vortex days.

Wear with the garter stitch edge out, for a “family friendly” look or flip the inside to the outside for a more “immature” version.
