Just try it....

December 2013
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
US 8 - 5.0 mm
200 - 400 yards (183 - 366 m)
sizing table - 3 single sizes (2 of which can be doubled) - yarn weights from sock to worsted, giving you lots of options.

Took a cowl over for a friend.

Asked her silver-haired, bike-riding, ultra marathon-running (100k) husband if he’d wear one - he just spluttered.

So I asked him to try it on -
within less than a minute HE was explaining to me in great technical detail why this was the perfect item for all of his outdoor pursuits.

Honestly, much more practical for active guys than a scarf - if only you can get them to try….

For snow clearing: it can be pulled up over the face
For wood-cutting: no danger of it getting caught in the chainsaw

Some of the guys like a closer-fit, so I added a tighter “guy” size.

Sizes ladies might like are included too.

Many thanks to the testers (and their male models ☺):
