I hate it when the scarf I put on bunches up under my jacket, or flaps around my face. Even a cowl is not long enough to tuck into the front of my jacket to stop the wind blowing down my neck.

I knit myself a SCOWL - a nice simple cowl with a scarf attached. The cowl keeps my neck warm; the long scarf section keeps my chest warm.


You can use 2 balls of DK yarn (shown in white) or 200gms of handspun (shown in pink coloured photo) - either way it looks great.
