This simple cowl pattern features a chart motif from the village of Selbu, which is commonly found on the palm of Selbu mittens, as well as on Selbu cardigans. The cowl is worked bottom-up in the round, and can easily be modified both length-wise and in circumference.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me in my Ravelry group ‘Skeindeer Knits’. It’s the best place for swift support.
