Snickerdoodle is a textured, squishy cowl knit up in two different sizes and uses a combination of simple ribbing coupled with twisted stitches. The quick-knit one-skein version is knit in-the-round; while the three-skein version is knit flat and subsequently joined at the end. Instructions for both cowls are included in written and charted formats. The one-skein cowl is worked in Clouds in My Coffee and the three-skein cowl is worked in Spelunking.

The color of the one-skein cowl reminded me of Snickerdoodle cookies; hence, the pattern name. A recipe for Snickerdoodles is also included as a separate file. I hope you enjoy both the cowl and the recipe!
