Sawston Cowl & Infinity Scarf
When the weather descends from the summer heat into the cool of autumn, then it’s time to knit some cozy accessories to keep the chills at bay. And what better than a quick and simple cowl? A cowl is the perfect addition to your autumn wardrobe — quick to knit, small to carry in your pocket or bag and ready for the first icy breezes from the North.
The pattern includes instructions for both a short neck-warmer cowl and a longer Infinity Scarf. The scarf version can be worn over your head like a hood or wrapped around your neck twice for extra warmth.
