Get cozy with the sweet Gingerbread Cowl ...
Featuring HiKoo's Sueno ...
Double layered for warmth, the Gingerbread Cowl features a wonderful two-color textured pattern on the outside and simple striped stockinette stitch on the inside. The patterning on the fabric reminds us of the pretty frosting decorations on a gingerbread house ... it may look complicated, but it is really a quick and easy knit!

The Gingerbread Cowl is knit in the round with a four row repeat that uses only one color per round. Slip stitches and simple cables create the patterning on the outside of the cowl which is then finished on the inside with stockinette stitch. A double layer of fabric is created by folding the piece over and seaming the cast on edge to bound off edge with a mattress stitch. You'll love wearing this sturdy, and warm cowl all winter long!
