Inspired by the ripples left in the sand when the tide goes out this is a quick to knit cowl with a variety of size options, choose from:

Narrow and snug - close fitting and from shoulder to chin in height.
Tall and snug - close fitting but tall enough to fold over or keep your nose warm.
Narrow and long - a longer and loose fitting cowl.

This pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
