Cowl Whitman is a stockinette stitch cowl with a funky stranded color design. The cowl works up quickly in worsted weight yarn and begins and ends with some rows of twisted ribbing. The pattern is given in three sizes, but can easily be made larger. All the cowls pictured are in the small size, except for the one by canuckeh. That is the medium. The small size is designed with a snug fit to warm the neck.

A note about the name: I was having a hard time coming up with a name. My husband is very funny and after much trial and error, he suggested that I name it to honor my mom, Carol Whitman. She would be thrilled to have it named after her and would very much appreciate the humor in it.
