There is nothing more satisfying than an easy-to-knit, beautiful-to-wear, luxuriously soft accessory. The Cowl made its appearance at VKLive in NYC and due to overwhelmingly popular demand, here is the “recipe” for this chic little piece. Held triple-stranded with one worsted weight and two fingering weight yarns, the possibilities are truly endless. Subtle shaping is achieved using three different needle sizes and our sample was knit until we ran out of yarn, so have fun with this little cowl!
