Ever since making Rinde, I have been in love with textured single loop cowls. Warm yet not bulky, they snug into your coat without gaping, and never give you that ‘turtleneck choke-hold’ feel!
The Winter Silk Cowl comes in two lengths, for those knitters who share my love for single cowl snuggliness, as well as those of you who prefer the double-wrapped infinity look.
This cowl is worked in the round using a deep, cushy stitch pattern that looks like it consists of two distinct layers of fabric. I-cord cast on and bind off complete an elegant, finished look.
Mountain Colors ‘Winter Silk’ (50% wool/50% silk, 200 yards/183 m, 3 oz/90g).
