Don’t go robbin’ the stagecoach in this cowl because it will make an impression on any witnesses. Instead use it in the spring and the autumn to keep the chill out. This neck warmer was designed not only for panache but to be practical. The shape makes it a super-duper neck hugger! The deep V in the front keeps your décolletage cozy even when your jacket falls open and the narrow back of the neck fits like a glove without any extra bulk. No drafts here!
The “bandana” shape pays homage to outlaw style but the colour blending confectionary is completely
au courant. We used Hedgehog Fibres Sock yarn in three different colours graduated from darkest to lightest to accentuate the shawls stitch pattern and shaping.
The cowl is worked flat starting at the neck centre front and worked with increases to create the V shape and then joined into a round to establish the cowl construction. It is finished with a sturdy i-cord bind off. Yeehaw!
