A quick knit for that one special skein that you cant figure out when and how to use it. A fingering weight yarn held double makes this pattern knit up quick for those last second gifts.

This cowl comes in 2 sizes. The smaller size uses just one skein of fingering weight that fits comfortably and cozy around your neck. while the large size is big enough to wrap around your neck twice.

A combination of knit and purl stitches gives this cowl its character. starting with a seed stitch border, you fade out of it little by little until there’s only a few purls spread out and then you fade back into the so that the cowl can be worn cast on or bind off on top..
