Knit with Circulars, but this is a great project to start with if you haven't.
Get Jiggy with it!
The Jiggy Cowl(tm) is a fun, easy and fast-to-knit delight, with great texture, making it great for gifts or to enhance your own wardrobe. It also is very unisex; make one for your guy, or girl, your brother or sister, father, mother, cousin or a friend! It is a great project for newer knitters wanting to break away from straight scarves to try knitting with circulars for the first time, or for advanced knitters who want to make something great and quick. You could also make it in a bulky summer yarn for year-long possibilities! The cowl is reversible, too!
