Knits and purls make a subtle, graphic texture, while shaping creates a cowl that slips over your head and flares at the bottom to fit perfectly under your coat or hoodie. Make it in a semisolid gray for a wardrobe staple or pick your favorite bright hand-dyed DK weight to add a pop of color to your outfit. It’s worked from the top down and can easily be modified to be longer.
