About
First, I wanted to create a very cozy cowl – one you want to live in, with a fun texture to knit.
On second thought, I got a whole bunch of ideas to play with this pattern, which led to the smaller version and a big bonus section. Please let me know how you like that!

Construction
This unisex cowl is worked in the round from the inside to the outside and back again to the inside.
There are several possibilities to alternate the measurements, change to different yarns and connect the beginning and the end. If you want to create your own version have a look at the whole pattern – including the bonus section!
