If you enjoy a simple to work project that offers striking results (and who doesn’t?), then this cozy, textured cowl in two sizes (S/L) is for you. Worked completely in the round, it’s a no stress way to experiment with color knitting. Also travels well and works up quickly for a go-to gift that’s never the same twice.
