This chunky cowl works up quick and easy. It fits snug around the neck, but can be increased for a longer cowl. Also, it pulls up to protect the face against the cold outside. Or, roll it down for a great look.
The cowl is crocheted in a chunky yarn, but feel free to use any other yarn you have on hand. Just make sure to adjust your beginning chains for a proper fit.
