Nor'wester Cowl PDF
A classic, easy to knit color pattern pops boldly on the warm and wooly Nor’wester Cowl. Knit in the round in Imperial Yarn’s Columbia 2-Ply, this cowl is trimmed with bold striped ribbing at the neckline edge, and a simple ridge of reverse stockinette on the bottom. Please note that the cowls shown used almost the full hank of both colors; depending on individual knitting tension and swatching, an extra hank of each color may be needed.
