The Betangled Cowl is a warm, luxurious cowl for those coldest of days in deep winter. The fabric is completely reversible, with dramatic ribbed cables on a garter-stitch field. This cowl is knitted from one short end to the other, and then the ends are connected with a button closure.

The pattern includes three sizes: a single loop, a longer single loop that can be worn around the shoulders, and a double loop. The circumference of the loop can easily be adjusted as you go. Although the pattern calls for worsted-weight yarn, dk, and aran-weight yarns will be equally beautiful.
