This cowl is part of an ebook collection of 5 cowls where each cowl is being released weekly starting November 27th and ending on December 25th. Purchasing the ebook will mean you pay half for each cowl pattern as opposed to purchasing them individually. You will receive the updates for each pattern as they are released. The collection will include cowl patterns using a range of constructions, textures and yarn weights with at least one colorwork cowl.

Please note that refunds will not be given if you purchase patterns individually and then decide to buy the ebook.

This is a cowl version of my popular Fidra hat pattern. There are two sizes of cowl two choose from. The larger cowl is shaped to get narrower at the top and the smaller cowl is straight with no shaping (and also not as wide). It should be possible to get both cowls out of 2 balls of Quarry yarn (if in the same color). Charted and written instructions are provided.
