The Sieve Cowl starts out very ordinary but quickly morphs into a funky shape that shows off a wide eyelet pattern with lots of drape down the front of the neck. The back of the neck remains simple and smaller so you get less bunching at the nape of the neck, making it perfect for those with long hair or for wearing the cowl with a collared jacket.

The cowl is worked in the round from the top down, and the length is easily customizable. The increases and volume are added with yarn overs and short rows, so this pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner knitter.

The pattern calls for a Bouclé handspun at 10-11 WPI; if using a smoother yarn, choose a bulky yarn and appropriate needles to get gauge.
