A super-quick, very easy cowl in a 2 x 1 ribbed pattern. The ribbing keeps the cowl from flopping, and it can also be folded over to adjust the height for weather conditions. Ideal for showing off the texture of handspun yarn and easily adjustable to any weight of yarn. And, the ribbed pattern matches the ribbing in the Maine Morning Mitts by Clara Parkes, so they make a nice set.

The sample cowl is knit in Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop (a fingering-weight yarn) held doubled. The yardage quoted in the pattern is the doubled amount (i.e., you’d need 120 to 200 yards of fingering-weight yarn.) The pattern is written for aran-weight yarn, but is easily adjustable to your yarn choice.
