This is a slightly more sophisticated take on my Let’s Hike cowl and headband. My husband wears his variegated Let’s Hike cowl nearly every day, and I decided to make him a classier version to wear with his work outfits. The Cohenside Cowl uses broken rib, garter, and stockinette stitch and looks great on either side, so there’s no need to fuss with the “right side” of the work. This light- to midweight design works well as an outdoor or indoor accessory that is both functional and stylish. The fingering weight version uses less than 50 g of fingering weight yarn, making it a quick gift knit in hand-dyed yarn at an affordable price point. Version 1.1 includes additional directions for a DK weight version, which are found on P. 3.
