The cowl’s rolled edges make it flexible for all types of weather. It sits loosely on the neck, so you can wear it rolled up for a more casual look, or unroll the edges so it stands up more to provide more full coverage and warmth.
This Marled Cowl is a perfect project for stash busting some yarn! You can customize colors, yarns, and sizing to get rid of whatever yarn you need! The cowl came about after I had some leftover Christis’ Choice Super Softspun Alpaca Tweed yarn from a cardigan I knit. I wanted to use the yarn but make something a little sturdier with it, so I paired it with some leftover Red Heart Acrylic Yarn I’d had forever. The softness of the alpaca pairs really well and levels up the acrylic yarn so it is a much more luxurious fiber than if I would have just used the acrylic on its own. It’s light, soft, and most of all warm!
