Here is another version of a bullion stitch cowl. This one is more of an open stitch, making it great for spring and fall weather. The stitch pattern is an easy multiple of two, so you can easily adjust this to any size from toddler to adult.
The cowl is shown here short, but the pattern provides instructions to make this into a long cowl scarf as well. With a long version you can wrap it twice for a cozy winter cowl if you like.
