This fun and easy Cowl is knit holding 2 strands of yarns together, providing an interesting texture. It uses 1 skein each of Habu Textiles N-80 Silk-wrapped Merino plus 1 skein of Shibui Knits Birch, which is 100% Merino. The textured Habu yarn plays against the soft single-ply Birch for a striking and sophisticated look. The Cowl can be knit to wrap singly around the neck, or you can make the longer, narrower version to wrap double. Both pattern versions are included in the Yarn Kit. The Kit comes in several great color combinations - chose one for yourself and one for a friend! And these would make unique gifts, too.
