This playful cowl is a joy to knit and so easy to wear. It would be great folded down to make a double layer of picots, or effortlessly slouched. Knit this cowl in a soft yarn for maximum snuggle, while the garter stitch borders make a great canvas for playing with color combinations.

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls.
I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
