Here’s a lovely accessory to warm your neck with pure softness. This cowl is worked in the round in Garter stitch from the bottom up.

Decreases are worked at regular intervals as you knit up to the top. This slightly tapered shape allows the cowl to drape very nicely around your neck.

Because this is worked in the round, the Garter stitch is achieved by alternating knit and purl rounds. This is a perfect little gift project that only requires one hank of the Flax Down yarn from Purl Soho. Or substitute your favorite cashmere or alpaca blend, worsted-weight yarn for an equally sumptuous result.
