Designer Kim Guzman has created a stunning pattern that does triple duty as a cowl, a wrap and an infinity scarf. The Kansas City Cowl, knit in NaturallyCaron.com Country, features a gorgeous cabled center panel plus an intriguing drop stitch detail. This stunning one-color project will kick off your 2012 wardrobe in style.

Note from designer: This accessory is sized only to large because it was specifically requested to be both a cowl and the poncho/shoulder shrug in one accessory item. Sizing up would mean that, in order to fit around the shoulders, then a cowl would lengthen as well. After a certain point, it’s simply too long. However, it’s very easy to adjust the size, as desired. Just keep in mind that a larger size to fit around the body will increase the cowl length as well. Not a problem if you wanted to wear it only as a shoulder shrug. But, it could become cumbersome if you wanted to also wear it as a cowl.

Note from Designer: This pattern is no longer available on the Caron website. I have been given written permission to post the PDFs of my free Caron patterns on Ravelry.

Cable insert measures 9”/23cm long by 3½“/9cm wide.
