Inspired by the ripple patterns of the wind on drifting snow, this cowl blends a light and airy stitch pattern with a chunky, shimmering yarn. The dropped Stitch Rib pattern is reversible and uses short row shaping to form the ripples and drifts. The cowl can be worn in a big loop or wrapped around your neck twice for a cozy feel.

The pattern uses two shades of Sirdar Softspun Chunky: Nest (580); 2 x 50g balls and Frostie (562); 2 x 50g balls.

The tension is measured over one section of drop stitch short row pattern: 58sts and 16 rows on 6.5mm needles measures 40cm by 12cm.

The finished scarf measures 40cm x 124cm lightly stretched, before sewing up.
