Boxy Cowl

4.50 USD  

Every fall and winter wardrobe needs a big squishy knitted cowl. This one has texture, softness, and can be worn many ways. It is reversible, with a different pattern on each side. Show off one side or the other, or both at the same time. Wrap it once or twice. The Boxy Cowl is worked in the round and a provisional cast on is used to allow for each edge to have an identical bind off. Any aran or worsted weight yarn can be used.
