When the temperatures tumble, a cowl is always one of the first layers we add on. Knit in the round, this cowl is available in two versions—a short funnel-neck, or a longer style, to be doubled and worn. Either way, this charted pattern will help ward off the impending winter chill and showcase your favorite Aran weight yarn.

YARN
Funnel-neck Version:
Plucky Knitter, Groovy (100% cashmere; 195 yds / 178 per 100 g): Grumpy Goat 3 skeins. Approx 575 yds / 525 m of aran weight yarn

Long Doubled Version:
Plucky Knitter, Groovy (100% cashmere; 195 yd / 178 per 100 g): Bingo 3 skeins. Approx 650 yd / 594 m of aran weight yarn

Please note, the Long Doubled Version sample took nearly all 3 skeins of Groovy. Since we all consume yarn differently, it’s recommend to get an extra skein. Also note, approx yardage is always listed with 10% padding.
