Cowls are so cozy and warm for this time of year, they are also faster to make (in my humble opinion) than scarflets! Sophia is a two-toned, somewhat large cowl that is saturated with color and dappled with a soft texture, this cowl gives you both a comfortable, warm feel and a pretty look.
It is super easy to make also!

One more thing, if you would like this cowl to have a closure, you could go here to find several to choose from. You can use a contrasting color for your frog or one of the two tones of the cowl. Here is a specific example, though this blog is full of other frogs that you might try:

Thank you, +Little Treasures, a two-toned cowl is a lot more striking to the eye than one made in a single hue. Enjoy!
