These five cowls were gifted by my mother in law to several ladies in the family. Each was made using Lion Brand Wool Ease, based off a pattern from a cowl she bought for someone else. The Wool Ease makes them washable, while still retaining a bit of wooly goodness.
I modified my Maggie Cowl pattern by casting on 184 stitches, and then purling 6 stitches between each mock cable. I like this larger version - big enough to wrap twice around your neck or wear once and let hang a bit long, and tall enough that it can be pulled down over the shoulders a bit and worn as a caplet if you'd like!
The cowls measure 21" across when laid flat, and 14" tall.
