A cozy cowl and headband set designed to keep you warm as the winter light wanes. Knit in the round, incorporating a knit-purl stitch combination resulting in soft spirals of texture. This project is knit with yarn held double, if substituting yarns you can also use a yarn of 125g/140yards held single.

The sizing is flexible. The pattern is written so the cowl knits up as 23” x 7” and the Headband is 19” x 2.75.“ If you’d like to make the cowl wider or taller you can easily adjust that, likewise this can also be done for a wider headband.
