This cowl is a toddler version of Closer. This no-fuss cowl will keep your little one warm, and is perfect for the active toddler. Draping deeply at both front and back, it uses only a tiny bit of sport weight yarn. Like its grown-up version, it is easy to make it larger or smaller.

Measurements are given in both centimeters and inches.
