The Festive Cheer Cowl is designed to be a fun and festive project to enjoy throughout Advent and the festive season. You can begin on Day 1 of advent and gradually add to your cowl throughout December or wait until you’ve opened all of your mini skeins before deciding which order to knit them in. The choice is yours!
The cowl is knit in the round and features mosaic knitting sections to keep the project interesting, whilst remaining a relaxing project you can turn to during the slightly more chaotic moments of the season! Most importantly, the Festive Cheer Cowl aims to bring joy and cheer to your festive knitting, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Sizes: There are two different sizes available for the cowl. The Smaller size will fit once around the neck, and the larger size will fit twice around the neck.
