Designed for and modeled by my husband, Dan Cohen.

This design has been updated as of September, 2020, to V1.1, which ALSO includes directions for Cohenside Cowl DK!

My husband wears his variegated Let’s Hike cowl nearly every day, and I decided to make him a classier version to wear with his work outfits. COHENSIDE COWL uses broken rib, garter, and stockinette stitch and looks great on either side, so there’s no need to fuss with the “right side” of the work. This light- to mid-weight design works well as an outdoor or indoor accessory that is both functional and stylish. This pattern includes directions for both fingering and DK weight versions.
