The Betangled Cowl is the perfect addition to ShadyStroll Knits patterns. The project is a warm, luxurious cowl for those coldest days in deep winter. The fabric is completely reversible, with dramatic ribbed cables on a garter-stitch field. This cowl is knitted from one short end to the other, and then the ends are connected with a button closure. The Betangled Cowl is a fun, satisfying knit with dramatic results especially if worn in white on a snowy, winter's day.
The pattern includes three sizes: a single loop, a longer single loop that can be worn around the shoulders, and a double loop. The circumference of the loop can easily be adjusted as you go. Although the pattern calls for worsted-weight yarn, dk and aran-weight yarns will be equally beautiful. Fully written instructions are provided, along with an optional chart.
Kit includes pattern selected yarn & 6 buttons (you will be able to pick your selection after purchase). For yarn winding services, click here.
