I love how open and lacy this cowl looks. I have never tried Red Heart Boutique Twilight, but I love the bulky chainette construction and it seems perfect for tons of winter items including garments. I think this cowl could even be finger knitted since it uses such chunky needles. The tension may not be as even if you work it this way.

I do like the look of this one, but I've used that yarn many times and the gauge stated on here is way off. I will use a provisional cast on because I hate sewing seams.

The super chunky yarn gives this a really interesting look and the project is so fast and easy! This would make a great gift or a quick project for a beginner. I'm getting a new coat for winter and this would be a quick way to whip up something to go with it!

love the look of this cowl as well as the quick and easy knit the pattern is simple to follow and easily remembered after the first few rows, while 13 stitches over 40 rows is a breeze. Ideal for the person who likes to see the completed project as soon as possible
