Knit completely in the round with two colorways of fingering-weight yarn (one of which is variegated to create extra visual interest), the Lynsey Cowl is beyond cozy thanks to the yarn floats that get hidden inside the cowl as you work! The supersized motifs are also a modern take on the “X and O” shapes traditional to fair isle knitting.

The cowl starts with a provisional cast on and is knit as a tube. Once the full length is knit, the end of the cowl is grafted to the beginning of the cowl for a professional-looking result that is fully reversible. Perfect for men and women alike and with an endless number of color combinations, you’ll be reaching for this accessory as soon as cool weather beckons!
