About the Quick Knit Cowl / Neck Warmer:
This cowl/neck warmer is a must have for the winter! Not only is it made with chunky/thick yarn, but it can be folded over to provide double the warmth. This is a very quick knit and perfect for beginner knitters. The entire scarf consists of a 1x1 ribbed pattern which can be completed with the simple knit and purl stitches (watch the knit stitch 'how to' tutorial here, purl stitch tutorial here). My scarf ended up being about 22 inches in circumference & about 9.5 inches in width. I chose to use a bold red color to contrast the (at times) dreary winter days.
Materials I Used:
- 16'' US size 15 circular needles
