We will soon be heading into cowl season, its really no surprise that these cosy neck warmers are still topping the list as the number one knitwear accessory and for our climate, the bulkier the yarn is......... the better.  This FAB-TASTIC COWL has quickly become a favorite project with knitters far and wide, it requires minimal knitting time, BIG needles and the yarn just feels so soft and squishy. 

Wear it long and loose on mild days, for a warm layer right next to your neck.

Double loop it on wintry days to keep the chill away.
