Designed by myself, this warm cowl is part of a series of cowls I'm doing inspired by New York, my home state. They are designed to be comfortable, fun to knit, and perfect to wear with a stylish wool coat or a denim jacket. The Greenwich Village Cowl is named after my favorite part of New York City. Located on the west side of Lower Manhattan, this Bohemian neighborhood is a haven for artists and musicians of all types. This cowl reminds me of Greenwich Village because it's unconventional, artistic, and one-of-a-kind. Suggested yarns: Anything worsted weight. Use your scraps!
