When you’re walking on the fells, or even just popping into town you need something stylish to keep out the draughts. This simple cowl is knitted in the round, so no seams to sew up. A combination of bold colour and texture combine to make a stylish and useful accessory.
In a range of sizes, the pattern is easy to customise and can be embellished with knitted or crochet flowers, an oversize bow or left plain as you wish.
Stuck for a simple gift for a new knitter? A skein of Whitfell Chunky, a set of needles and this pattern would be an ideal gift for knitters of all ages. The simple texture will suit men and boys too.
