Unarmoured Defence Cowl by Katt Weaver

Katt Weaver has designed this cowl using our Cheviot Marsh DK. She wanted to knit something that would provide lots of warmth and cosiness, but was lightweight enough to carry around without bulk when not needed.  She hoped that it would make layering garments easier and more flexible, and it turned out to be incredibly practical and even enabled her to use some coats that had sat unused in her wardrobe for a few winters.

It can be worn with the collar folded once in half or folded twice and with the buttons unused or closed, all enabling more cosiness or more airflow as required.

We love the idea and think it could be a really useful and fun addition to your wardrobe.
