This slouchy cowl is stylish and easy to wear. Toss it on in any direction for cozy warmth and a chic layer. The textured circle motifs are fun to knit and create visual interest when the cowl is seamed. The clever construction means there is no shaping -- just work a rectangle and then sew the cast-on edge to the side for a faux triangle shawl. Work yours in your favourite fingering or worsted weight yarn.
