On The Horizon


On the Horizon is an easy and fast project that takes a slightly different twist on the traditional cowl. The finished piece looks like a scarf (and can be worn that way too if you prefer), but you can also wrap it around your neck and then button to secure in place to wear as a cowl.

This is the PDF version of the pattern. After going through the checkout you will receive an email with a downloadable PDF link. If you prefer to purchase through Ravelry, click here.
