Runaround Pond is a quiet, peaceful pond in Durham, Maine, not too far from my home. The beautiful, bright green colorway of the Bertha Sport yarn (shown in the long version) reminded me of all of the shades of green you see at this pond, from the lily pads to the tall grasses.

This cowl is knit in the round and features an easy eyelet rib stitch pattern.

2023 Update: Pattern now includes instructions for a short version of the cowl! Shown in photos in Myak Tibetan Cloud
