I’ve been vacationing in Breckenridge and Lake Tahoe this winter, so I’ve had a lot of time to think about keeping warm. I was especially concerned with keeping my face warm on ski lifts, so I improvised this bulky, double-knit cowl while in Colorado before Christmas.

I thought I’d share the pattern with you all. It’s a pretty simple double-knit tube — I recommend using the magic-loop method instead of using double-pointed needles, but either are fine.
