Worked up in a super bulky yarn, the Barents Cowl is a quick and easy knit that looks more complex than it is - perfect for Christmas gift-giving.

This cowl will keep you toasty while the icy winds blow – it is designed to be worn folded in half, which gives it structure and keeps you warm. The outer stitch pattern is reminiscent of oceans and sea ice, while the inside ribbing keeps it close to your neck.
