Another simple to follow pattern for a cowl that is quick-knit and to think of the variety of colours one can use to knit it!! The trend to cowls is a boon to beginning knitters as one skein creates this cowl and the cowl is a blessing to the people wearing them - there are no ends to blow in the wind and to have to be caught and tucked in or tossed back against the wind. The cowl tucks around the neck and into the neckline of the coat or jacket, keeping the neck warm and never blowing away. Just can't get enough patterns for them

Would love the pattern for the head band also.
