A simple, easy to knit cowl looks dramatic knit up extra- long in a luxurious, drapey yarn. A series of knits and purls create a sculptural effect and one set of decreases taper the top slightly to showcase lots and lots of stripes. Not close fitting, not long enough to wrap around twice - rather something in the middle - to be worn like a beautiful necklace. Of course, you can easily customize this cowl to whatever size you’d like!
