Castles can get pretty chilly, and a sumptuous cowl will keep out the drafts. A deep forest green yarn and a simple rib stitch combine to create a stunning accessory for modern-day lasses as well.  Created on super bulky weight Magnum, this beginner level project will be quickly completed in a few hours!  To view all of the patterns in Highland Knits, click here.

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Magnum by Cascade Yarns (100% Wool; 250g/123yds): 1 Skein.  

ALTERNATE YARN: Rasta by Malabrigo (100% Merino Wool; 150g/89yds): 2 Skeins. Rasta is made of soft merino wool that is lightly felted so that the garment resists pilling and shedding.  The beautiful variegated colors add depth and movement as well.

ALTERNATE YARN: Bulky by Blue Sky Fibers (50% Alpaca / 50% Wool; 100g/45yds): 3 Skeins.  For a slouchier cowl, try Bulky.  The alpaca creates extra softness and drape while the wool provides a bit of structure.  If you feel that this cowl needs a little something extra, try one of Bulky's gorgeous colors!

OTHER TOOLS: Stitch Marker
GAUGE: 5 stitches and 7 rows = 4 inches in K3, P1 rib
