I adored the stitch pattern for the Gearhart Hat so much that I had to design a matching cowl! The Gearhart Cowl is written for two sizes. The small size can be knit up in that single skein of worsted weight yarn in stash for a quick gift! The large size is long enough to wrap twice around the neck for a squishy, cozy cowl on those cold days. The best part is the stitch pattern looks just as good on the wrong side so no matter how the cowl is worn, the design looks great!
