In the winter I love my scarves, neck warmers and now my cowl!! Even after I have come inside and taken off my jacket – I will keep my neck covered – keeps me toasty warm. The thing I really like about neck warmers and now my cowl is that it is not bulky under my jacket and it does not get in the way when wearing in the house. My next cowl I think will be long enough to also be a hat/cowl!! I came across this pattern from a Google search – what did we do before Google?!
I purchased this yarn over a year ago – fell in love with it at the local yarn store! When I decided on this cowl – I knew exactly what yarn I was going to use.
