This cowl ended up exactly as I had in mind. I wanted the part around my neck superlong and snug so that it would protect my neck properly against the cold and wind. Here in Amsterdam we use our bicycles all year through so we need that bit of extra protection. I also went down one hook size for the ribbing to make it a bit tighter.

You’ll start the Leah cowl from the bottom, increasing on both sides every row. This way the triangle will grow larger. Then you’ll make that extra long “body” of the cowl and you finish with the ribbing and edging.

The pattern is suitable for the advanced beginner. I’ve made a photo tutorial to make it even easier. You will have some ends to weave in, but maybe this is an excellent opportunity to use up your scraps!
