The Heathcliff Cowl is a sibling pattern to my original Heathcliff Scarf. Sometimes a traditional scarf just isn’t practical, so having the option for a smaller cowl is needed. Heathcliff Cowl uses 5 different colors of tweed yarn that is just the right amount for using up small bits of fingering weight yarn in your stash. Or, you can work this cowl up all in one color for a solid textured look. The seed stitch borders combine with the basketweave stitch center for a squishy textured look that’s perfectly cozy for wearing close around the neck.
