The Sunnydale Cowl is a practical accessory for chilly, late-night graveyard strolls, when your hands might be otherwise occupied with stakes and crossbows. Originally designed for the Yarnover Truck Yarn Club’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”-themed shipment, the cowl features dropped stitches that show off the gorgeous variegated colorway from Apple Tree Knits. A subtle “fanged” motif reminds you to keep your jugular protected at all times!

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions. UPDATED 2/14/2020 TO INCLUDE GUIDANCE ON MAKING A WORSTED WEIGHT VERSION!
