Aspen Cowl or Capelet
The Aspen is a unique design that can be worn several ways. Wear it as a cowl or neck warmer by tucking the edges under all around to create a double thickness and a V shape in front. For a capelet, wear the Aspen pulled down and use it for layering on those cold and windy days. The collar can be worn up or folded over. The super bulky yarn results in a cuddly fabric with lots of loft to keep you extra warm. This is a great beginner project for extra-large needles. This is a great project for the advanced knitter who just wants some easy and fast knitting.
