This stand-alone cowl is perfect for those who are not much of a scarf person. This particular version reaches into a hood that is shaped with short rows to fit over the head. And it's worked in an easy, textural garter stitch. This cowl is best worked in a yarn that's soft and somewhat squishy, something that will feel good against the skin as it fills its role as a shoulder and neck cocoon. Kumara is an excellent choice. Worked as a double strand of yarn, its soft halo and buoyant hand feel plush, light, and warm on the wearer.
