Puddle cowl is knit back and forth and in the round using stockinette and garter stitches. Deep yoke and shallow top border both worked back and forth to create an slit that can worn on the left or right side. Main part of cowl is worked in the round creating lots and lots of fabric that will puddle together when worn. When the wind is cold and biting, pull your cowl over your head to keep warm!
