What better way to shelter yourself from the cold than with a snuggly cowl knit in soft chunky yarn? Large cables create an interesting pattern, both to wear and to knit. Knit in a large rectangle with short rows to widen the bottom, the cowl can then be grafted together or joined using a three needle bind off. Thick yarn and large needles
make this a quick knit; perfect for a gift or as a palette cleanser between larger projects.

Needles: US 11/8.0mm or size to obtain gauge straight or circular, plus one additional needle if working the optional 3-needle bind off.
