Each kit comes with The Cooler Side of Warm cowl pattern and 2 skeins of Hikoo SimpliNatural Yarn.
The Cooler Side of Warm is a cozy cowl, knit in Hikoo SimpliNatural, from the bottom up. It begins with 1x1 ribbing knit flat and then is joined to be worked in the round. As a result, it has a split-hem on one side that allows it to sit comfortably on the shoulder and lie flat against the back and chest. It is finished with 1x1 rib on a smaller needle to prevent gaping at the neck.
