This choose your own adventure pattern allows you to really individualize your own cowl: team colors, fall, Christmas or your best friend’s favorites (Megan would love 2 or 3 shades of green.) Easy enough to knit in the company of friends but with enough interest to keep you motivated to finish. Knit your preferred length, long or short, stripes or color blocking, Latvian braid or plain, as well as with or without corrugated ribbing. If you enjoy colorwork, spice things up a bit for the ribbing or leave it simple with a one color rib. Chose two or three of your favorite contrasting colors and make one for yourself and for friends and family.
