Simply by varying the wool and needle sizes, you can create this elegant neck-warmer in 3 different sizes. Whether a snug fit, a slightly looser fit which can also create a fold-down collar or wider cowl that allows a fold-over front, this cowl is all that and more!
Cowl may be worn with Butterfly Tip edge or Twin Half-Leaf edge up for two very different looks. Turning the cowl inside out and folding the edge down provides an elegant collared effect. As a bonus, the non-public side of the cowl presents a lovely face as well.
The 3 yarns and needle sizes listed are the 3 options included in the pattern to provide the 3 different sized cowls.
