Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

The Winifred Cowl is the perfect marriage of structure and squish. This large cowl features a wide rib stitch pattern knit in the ever-squishy Puffin yarn. It is knit in the round from the bottom up with a larger base and subtle gradual decreases, working up to a smaller top collar. The top half of the cowl is worked flat and features 3 buttons, which provide greater ease in putting on the cowl and greater flexibility in how the cowl can be worn. Just think of all the ways you could wear your very own Winifred Cowl?
