When you’re making a list of gifts to knit for friends, family or charity, no need to check it twice for quick projects if you have this design in your queue. Worked in a squishy, Aran-weight yarn, this handsome cowl will delight men and women alike with a design that is simple (and fast!) to knit.

  • The cowl features a sewn bind-off for maximum stretch (instructions are included), but the knitter may substitute a standard bind-off worked loosely or another stretchy bind-off.

  • Other Aran-weight yarns will work well in this cowl.
