  • This quick, easy-to knit scarf or cowl can be worked in two yarn weights (fingering or DK/light worsted) and five sizes (petite scarf/tall scarf)[S cowl/M cowl/L cowl] for a cozy layer on chilly days. Natural yarn colors enhance the fabric texture while richly-dyed yarns will dramatize the openwork and bold geometry. This project makes a great beginner or travel knit.
    Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
