Baila Cowl is a sister pattern of Baila hat. It is such a rewarding and very quick project. The stitch pattern I created for this set looks like stitches are twirling and dancing in the rhythm, making it very intuitive to knit. The cowl is seamless and worked in the round from the bottom up. This cowl was designed to use only 2 skeins of bulky yarn, so it makes it a great last-minute gift. In addition, it is fully reversible and unisex making it a great accessory for colder days. You can knit one in a weekend. Knit Baila Cowl and enjoy winter walks! Please read the pattern carefully before you knit your Baila Cowl.
