The TRUFFULA TUFT COWL is a light and airy loop of softness to envelope your neck in warmth. This design uses a single-ply fingering weight yarn alternated with a mohair blend lace weight yarn to create a semi-transparent, buoyant accessory that still provides plenty of coziness. An I-cord edge gives the cowl structure without compromising fluff factor.

This cowl is easily customizable to different sizes should you want a longer, looser fitting single loop, a triple loop or whatever your heart desires! Simply knit to the length you wish, keeping in mind that blocking can significantly lengthen your work.

In addition, this cowl would be a great stash-buster! You can easily substitute Color A with smaller amounts of color coordinated scraps or partial skeins. I would recommend using colors that are somehow related, for example, by saturation (all jewel tones, all pastels) or by color (all blues, a gradient).
