The Hometown Cowl is a squishy, snuggly cowl that incorporates knitting into the row below for a splash of interest amidst basic knits and purls. Designed to be stylish simplicity, this cowl will serve your cold weather fashion for years to come.
The Hometown Cowl functions well keeping the autumn chill away and between-seasons office and restaurant air from freezing your neck into miserable, unfocused submission.
Because it’s designed for super bulky yarn, it knits up swiftly. Don’t let the thickness of the yarn fool you, though; the squishy and open fisherman’s rib drapes well and lends itself to multiple wraps.
Wear it long, wrapped twice, or folded in half with the ends pulled through for a traditional scarf look. Your imagination is the only limit when it comes to your trailblazing style.
