Our gift to you this season: a super-versatile cowl pattern that is simplicity itself, with details for eight yarn weights so you can use almost any yarn (or combination of yarns) you like.

The pattern lists yardage requirements for each knitted inch of depth so you’ll know just how far each skein can go. Make one for you, one for a friend!

Download our Holiday 2015 Printed Mailer and find the free pattern (on page 4). And then choose a yarn from fingering to bulky weight and get knitting!
