The Design

"Snuggly, squishy merino & mohair."

The first half of this ribbed cowl is knit flat—to split over one shoulder or create an opening in 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 the Half & Half Cowl any way you like!

We’ve created a free adaptation for a cowl with oodles of structure and woolly warmth in Rowan Cocoon. Since Cocoon is slightly finer than the original Brushed Fleece version, we’ve compensated by casting on 70 stitches (be sure to pick up the free adaptation for more info). Chunky-weight and single-ply, Cocoon lends a dense squish, and a little less drape, to this cowl’s ribbing. And Cocoon’s combination of merino and mohair is utterly snuggly—perfect for this lavish piece.
