Take Five Cowl
Take Five Cowl
With the Take Five Cowl, you can relax while knitting and wearing the garment! This cowl is knit in the round with simple striping to create a faded look. By using smaller needles for the last color block, you create a tapered finish so the top of the cowl is slightly smaller than the bottom. This allows the cowl to sit nicely along your neck and show off its wonderful colors. Begging to be worn with a tank or heavy coat, this cowl is perfect for lounging or on-the-go.
