This plush and squishy cowl is knit with 6 skeins of Rowan "Alpaca Classic" yarns in a great color combination. Yowza!! The cowl can be worn wrapped double - or even triple - for those extra cold days. We love this light, yet warm yarn construction from Rowan, where the Alpaca fibers are blown into a cotton tube. That means there's almost no weight to this cowl, just warmth and coziness! The Rowan pattern calls for a Mobius cast-on, but we recommend a regular cast-on instead.
