This pattern was designed to be the perfect cowl. I have knit a lot of cowls and though pretty they weren’t exactly what I needed or wanted.
This cowl is slightly fitted at the top but elastic enough that it won’t cling to your neck. This means no baggy top so it keeps you warmer. Then halfway down the cowl flares gently out so that it covers the rest of your neck and drapes elegantly over your collar bones keeping you warm and stylish.
Though this cowl appears to have shaping I assure you there is NONE! It is all just a trick of the knit. All you need to know how to do in this cowl are cast on, knit, purl, and cast off. That’s it. Easy as pie and a great result too!
This cowl would be perfect for using up that extra skein of yarn lying around or even handspun! Easy enough that you can finish as many as you want!
