I designed this particular cowl for my mother. It’s a quick knit, using only one ball of yarn, and will either keep you toasty warm, or simply provide an elegant alternative to turtleneck’s indoors depending on your fiber choice.

I used Plymouth Yarn’s Happy Feet Dk for my mother’s cowl, and still have enough yarn left to make one for myself! My pattern tester used Knit Pick’s Stroll Sport with satisfactory results.

Fingering weight works quite as well with a minor change. The pattern includes instructions for both Fingering and DK weight yarns.

The pattern includes both charted and written instructions.
