Two very easy unisex projects each utilising 200g of DK weight yarn.

Size: approx 15cm (6”) wide and 135cm (53”) long (or around).

Note on sizing: If you want a cowl that fits snugly around the head and neck (for extra insulation), knit the cowl one inch shorter.

The keyhole scarf is knit flat, with a conventional cast on and bind off.

For the cowl, depending on your level of skill and/or preference, you can either knit the length of the cowl and then sew the two ends together, or you can provisionally cast on and then graft the beginning and ending together to make an invisible join.

I have recommended Flagstaff Alpaca’s beautiful alpaca and alpaca blend yarn. However, any DK weight alpaca or alpaca blend would be a suitable substitute for the exact look and feel of what I have reproduced. You can, of course, use any DK weight yarn you prefer!
