Voilà: City Cowl

My City Cowl that was accepted by Knit Picks eons ago is now available on their website—and it’s free.

I do wish they had taken more time to style their photos (and maybe brush the model’s hair), but the cowl is worn the way it’s supposed to be.

Pattern Details: City Cowl by Robin Allen | A Texas Girl Knits

Soft and warm, this close-fitting cowl uses an easy stitch pattern to create an interesting textured rib. A rectangle is knit flat, then the edges are sewn off-center to create a cowl with a fold-over half collar that can be worn many ways—in the city and the suburbs.
