This simple cowl is perfect for both women and men. With a difficulty level of "Easy" this would be a great project for someone that has tackled a few beginning projects and is ready to try something only slightly more complicated. You'll need to know how to make post stitches, both back and front, as well as how to join rounds with a slip stitch.
This cowl is stitched with the yarn double-stranded. The pattern requires only 3 skeins. However, I like to work with 4 skeins so that I can pull from the inside of 2 skeins, rather than pull from both ends of my third skein.
