Protect you and your little ones from the cold with this tough cowl.

It’s made to stand up and cover your face from the winter chill, or push it down for a nice neck warmer.

Using Fair Isle crochet you can make two sizes of this skull motif cowl.

Sizes include:
Adult Cowl: 22.5” circumference x 9” high and
Child Cowl: 20” circumference x 8” high

Fair Isle is a technique where two colors are used in any particular row to create pictures or designs in your project. Don’t know how to do Fair Isle? Don’t worry, there is an extensive photo tutorial section (13 pages!!!) that will not only teach you how to create Fair Isle but also covers all of this:
