Windschief Cowl

I’m still dabbling around with warm cozy stuff even though it’s been 94 and humid this week in Michigan. This cowl is the brainchild of the talented young designer, Steven West.  Knitted without its top closed, it’s a cowl. Soon I will knit the hat version, which simply leaves the top ribbing off and continues the twisted rib section through the decreases in the crown of the hat. Cleverly conceived.

A simple pattern that relies on twisted rib, gently moving diagonally. This is a wonderful quick knit, worked here in Cascade 220 Heather in the Christmas colorway. Wool cowls and Christmas, a suggestion of cool during an oppressively hot week.
