The Design

“Chunky fluff.”

The first half of this ribbed cowl is knitted flat to split over one shoulder or create an opening in the front or back. Then, it’s joined in the round for a softly draping cowl or collar. Tubular cast-on and bind-off lend a sophisticated, ready-to-wear finish. Frontwards, backwards, upside down—wear it any way you like!

Plush, chunky-weight Rowan Brushed Fleece yields an extremely cozy cowl. A knitterly version of the Northwest’s ubiquitous polar fleece, it’s a super-soft blend of extra fine merino and baby alpaca. Warm and insulating, but remarkably light, Brushed Fleece has a rustic charm and a range of natural colors. Plus, all that chunky fluff means you will be snuggled up in your cowl in no time!
