Double Wrap Cowl

Free to download

This is not so much a pattern as a guideline for a simple double wrap cowl which can also be worn as a large loop around the neck (when your neck begins to overheat!) The nice thing about knitting a neck warmer this way is that it takes less yarn (and time) than a scarf yet is more substantial than a single cowl. Have fun trying different versions!
