Minim is a reversible cowl worked seamlessly in the round. The small version fits once around your neck while the large version may be worn as a loop or wrapped twice around your neck. It will keep your neck warm when you are out for a walk on a stormy or cold day.

This pattern is part of the eBook 2 ways, which features six designs using natural European merino yarns of de rerum natura. Five out of six items may be worn in two ways, either because of their stitch patterns or their construction. The sixth one is worked in different directions.
