Iona Cowl - Knitted Scarf Project

My Creation

Sometimes a bulky scarf is just too much, even for the chilliest of people. This project by Helen Ardley is an ideal compromise – it keeps you snug and fits neatly under your favourite winter coat. Unlike most cowls, it also covers your shoulders to add extra warmth.

I have the mag with this pattern in and fully intend to knit it once I've completed the nativity I'm presently knitting. It's gorgeous!
