Cold weather wear can be so much fun! I love cowls, don't you? They are so easy to make and to wear. You don't have to drag around a large scarf, you just drop it into your purse and you're set to go. If there is a chilly wind or a change in the weather, you're ready to be warm in style! Two different but similar textures hug your neck in warmth. This cowl is then completed in front in a third stitch that adds visual appeal to the whole. You can leave it as is or add a button of your choice.

Red Heart worsted weight yarn Guava (1 skein)

Optional: Decorative button of your choice
