Pattern Description:

You'll have this simple cowl done in a jiffy.... a snuggle for your neck.

Knit it up in 3-4 hours, the perfect quick knit for emergency gift giving. It's the lush wools that really make it I think - one can never go wrong with a bit of mohair and silk.

Don't be scared of this two-colour slipped stitch pattern - you're only working with one wool at a time to create this fabulous tweedy texture - so give it a go! This is a great one for using up leftovers as it looks great striped. And don't let the subtle combination in my version fool you - this cowl would look great with high contrast colours!
