Ruby Spice Cowl is knit in the round using sport-weight yarn on bigger needles. The pattern uses Classic Elite Yarn's Fresco, which provides a really nice drape due to the wool/baby alpaca/angora blend. The length is such that you can wear it as a regular cowl or wear it as a "snood", covering the top of your head and ears. Pattern also includes tips on how to alter style to make it more like an infinity cowl. This is a good project for when you don't want to concentrate too hard, but still want to create an interesting stitch pattern (and have a great accessory to wear when you're done!).
