It’s a hood, a scarf, and a fashion statement all in one! This cowl lets you burrow in on a cold day, covering whatever parts of your neck, face and head need protection. Worked in a simple slip stitch pattern, this is both stretchy and dense, easy to pull over your head but thick enough to keep out the wind.

Flexible in terms of gauge, Slippy the Cowl can be knit in most any gauge from 3 to 6 stitches an inch. Experiment with length, yarn choice and color, too.
