Refuge - shelter or protection from danger or distress; something to which one has recourse in difficulty. This cozy striped cowl is a part of my response to those who have no shelter - the homeless, the refugees, those who are literally left out in the cold. I wish that I could knit one for every homeless person in my city as winter approaches - and I hope that as a collective, we knitters will always work together to warm the hearts and bodies of those in need.

This pattern is free - please consider giving what you would have paid for it to provide shelter {here is a good place to start}.
