Chill Cheater cowl (in two lengths)
Directions are given for two lengths of a fun, cozy, chill-cheating cowl – one that rests right up near the neck (18 inches) and one that is long enough to wear as a hood (48 inches).
The samples are worked in a wonderful cotton/acrylic blend (perfect for those with wool allergies) but would work equally well in a worsted-weight wool. Four colors are needed for this design which is knit in the round.
The longer cowl has directions for knitting a contrast lining to cover the stranded-colorwork and add another layer for greater warmth.
