I'd like to share my "Fetching Fingerless Mitts" inspired cowl pattern. I knit this cowl for a friend's birthday using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. I only had about 3 skeins left over from another project and this cowl and the mitts were the perfect solution to use up my leftover stash. My friend is a very clever lady and not only did she see it to be useful as a neck warmer but also wears it as at hat. She puts the narrow end over her ears allowing the flaired end to stand up and kinda flop over. She can get away with that and not look ridiculous. I don't know if I could carry it off as well as she does! Love your style, girlfriend : )!
