Pattern Description:

My daughter is obsessed with monsters of all kinds. Sulley from Monsters Inc. is her favorite. When Cephalopod debuted their Beastie line at Rhinebeck in the fall of 2012, and the colorways were all named after monsters, I had to have it!

This chevron cowl is very warm, perfect for a cold fall day of apple picking and cider sipping. It can be worn once around the neck for a long look or doubled for extra warmth. Knit with aran weight yarn, it goes really fast!

Monster is knit flat using a provisional cast-on and kitchener stitch to connect the beginning and end of the cowl.
