Cold Weather Knitting: Reversible Cowl


I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but here in Brooklyn, it has been stupid cold for more than a week. Like, well below freezing cold. Curse the fact that you’re living in a drafty old brownstone cold. Zip a hot water bottle into your hoodie cold. (I’m not kidding. Even as I write this, my trusty red hot water bottle is peeking out of my sweatshirt.) And, while I totally get that there are plenty of places that regularly see temperatures a whole lot lower than last night’s 3 degrees F, I think we can all agree that, for any fiber crafter, all significant drops in temperature can only mean one thing: It’s definitely knit o’clock. Bonus points: When that knitting contains two warm and cozy layers!


Not only is this reversible cowl knitting project from The Purl Bee delightfully versatile—you get two colors options in one lovely piece of outerwear—its double layer design is also deeply practical for those extra-chilly February days.
