Pattern description from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts: “This cowl is made with an extra-fine cashmere yarn that is so soft it belongs right up against the skin. I wear this cowl two different ways depending on my mood: either folded in half so that it stands up around the neck, or unfolded and slouchy. Either way it looks and feels great.”
