This cowl is exactly what you need for colder weather. The thick double layer combined with enough length to double up keeps you warm and looking great!
The cowl is knit from side-to-side; it starts with a Provisional Cast-On and you then work in the round for the full length and graft the start and end together. This creates a double thickness cowl with patterning on both sides.
