Alfa is a little kerchief-style cowl. This design combines plain garter stitch with good details: perpendicular lines, exposed faux seams, and i-cord finishing.

This project requires both knitting flat and in the round! One thing to note: this is a loose-fitting cowl when knit at gauge. The .PDF includes some brief ideas about customization, if you’d prefer a more fitted neckwarmer.
