There is almost nothing I love as much as winter! A warm, dependable cowl can be a game changer for long walks in the snow & wind. This cheery colorwork cowl is started with a provisional cast-on then worked in-the-round to form a tube that is then grafted together, end to end. It is designed with enough length to double wrap which makes an incredibly cozy, super useful winter accessory! One more great thing? The stranded motifs are small & simple and don’t require catching floats!

Sizing:
One Size - The cowl measures 50” long/circumference and is 8.5” tall when laid flat.
