This cowl is a toddler version of Closer. (If you have purchased one of the two versions, you can get the other for free from now through the end of May. No coupon code required.) 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.
