Pattern Description:

Please Note: As of January 1, 2015 this pattern will no longer be available on Craftsy due to the new European Union taxation rules that are coming into effect regulating digital sales. Patterns will still be available through (via for EU customers). We sincerely apologize and regret that we will no longer be able to sell through this wonderful community.
Simply by varying the wool and needle sizes, you can create this elegant neck-warmer in 3 different sizes. Whether a snug fit (A), a slightly looser fit which can also create a fold-down collar (B) or wider cowl that allows a fold-over front (C), this cowl is all that and more!

Cowl may be worn with Butterfly Tip edge or Twin Half-Leaf edge up for two very different looks. Turning the cowl inside out and folding the edge down provides an elegant collared effect. As a bonus, the non-public side of the cowl presents a lovely face as well.

Pattern stitches are charted; row by row written instructions are also provided.
