Here in Sweden, I live in cowls from September through March (and sometimes beyond!) not just because they're warm, cozy and practical but also because they are such a quick and easy knit that it's been easy to fill my wardrobe with them!
The Kniterator "Blank Canvas" cowl pattern is just that - a simple stockinette cowl that you can embellish with your own colourwork, textures, cables or lace. You can also just use the base pattern to make your yarn sing - check out our downloadable "4 simple cowls" PDF guide in the Resources section for some easy ideas for making unique cowls!

Oh, and cowls make a fantastic Christmas gift too ... just sayin'
