Izett is a super warm, squishy cowl designed to stand up against the harshest of winter winds. Using an easy to repeat motif utilizing stranded knitting, you provisionally cast on then knit in the round. At the end you graft the stitches together to create a seamless piece.
This cowl is long enough to wrap twice around your neck, and is easily adjusted to create a shorter, single wrap cowl.
