In college, (and for some of us, far beyond) team pride and pub crawls seem to go hand in hand. There is nothing quite so representative of youth as enjoying the big game while spending the afternoon and evening hopping from bar to bar with your friends. In my world, this seems to be missing something: sticks and string. With the Pub Crawl cowl, you can show your school pride, your love for knitting, and your love for a nice dark pint or an ice cold bottle all at once.

Using Intarsia, the cowl is worked flat, and then seamed to create a close fitting, warm cowl that will show off your love of brew, and keep you warm while hopping from bar to bar. The three skeins of yarn will make two cowls; three cowls can be made by changing the placement of the colors, allowing you to make a cowl for a couple of friends too. Grab a few skeins in university colors, or in your favorite color combination and cast on for the perfect pub crawling accessory.
