Keeping warm in harsh winter weather requires the right combination of cozy layers. Luckily, Heidi from Hands Occupied, a Fargo native and current resident of the Windy City, knows all about that! If you want to stay nice and toasty when the temperature starts to drop, you’ll love her new knitted long john cowl tutorial. Much like your favorite pair of long underwear, the waffle-like stitch pattern on the cowl will help keep your body heat in and the icy chill out!

This super-snug cowl is extra tall, so it can be pulled up to protect your face and ears or folded down to be worn indoors.
