Day 10 of the 12 days of DIY gifts to make presents another large chunky cowl.
This season has seen this type of cowl in magazines and runways. This one is simple in construction, yet looks elegant and warm, and is long enough to pull up for a hood.
This will work up quickly with a Q hook and 2 skeins of super chunky yarn.
The cowl project time is about 1.5 hours to make.
Please do not post this pattern on your website or take it as your own. I ask that you instead link to my page, which will help with internet karma. Please note you can use this pattern for personal use and sell what you make. I only ask that you credit me as the pattern creator and link to this article. Thank you.
