Ready to cast on? Join me for the Every Bit cowl KAL in the Tellybean Knits Ravelry group.

This cowl was designed for knitters who love the look of a shawl, but only have the time and yardage for a cowl. Worked seamlessly from the top down, it knits up quickly, and wears like a hassle-free shawl. This cowl is designed to keep knitters engaged by combining lace, cables, and texture. Each section is easy to memorize, and fun to knit. Best of all, this is a one skein project. Simply adjust the length of your ribbing, follow the simple yardage directions for bind off, and you will use EVERY LAST BIT of your skein.
