“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ― Edith Sitwell

Sometimes the best acts of comfort are the simplest ones. No need for grand gestures, nor is there a need to stress oneself over what the most appropriate course of action would be. A listening ear, a friendly touch, or a handmade knit can bring great comfort to someone in need.

The Comfort Cowl, knit up in bulky yarn, makes for a quick knit, perfect for gift giving. It’s long enough to be wrapped around the neck for a snug fit, or can be worn hanging down. The Maori wave motif serves as a unique colorwork design that is simple to knit and stunning to look at.
