Tuck in ends and block.

Oh, I really like everything about this cowl the color, the stitch, the length in particular. In general I don't like anything too close and bulky around my neck, and because this is a really long cowl it's more like a scarf. It lets me trendy and comfy at the same time.

This is a classic and for good reason. Interesting enough yet simple enough for even a beginner. Working with thicker yarn and a size 13 needle it should work up fast. Even though it is a thicker yarn, if doesn't give the impression the model is wearing a blanket around her neck.

Love the look of this cowl - although I have to say I have yet to find any cowl restricting... I love them all.
