Pattern Description:

Ack! It's Monday morning and we're late for school again and it's cold but I can't find my coat because I know you kids used it to build a fort and you never hung it back up. Breathe. Breathe. Grab the cowl (and the matching Late for School Hat), the coffee, the kids... and RUN!

The Late for School Cowl will keep you warm on a cold day, especially when the kids have hidden your coat. It is knit in the round and striped with two colors of yarn, however each row only uses one color at a time. It's also a great project to use up yarn scraps or leftovers. Unlike your life, it is simple, elegant, and seems more complicated than it actually is.
