Ruffles and garter and ribbing, that's all it takes! This simple but fast cowl is sure to be warm and thick. Easy enough for a beginner and get for some mindless TV knitting if you just want something to relax and keep your hands busy. Plus, you can count on using the whole skein, but just one skein, of Lion Brand's Scarfie Yarn, a personal favorite.
