Simple, utilitarian cowl
Looking for a versatile accessory to pair with almost any outfit? The understated ‘Mira’s Cowl’ by Mira Cole would be a great pattern for this kind of item. Its simplicity is its strongest point, meaning you have a wealth of options available to you when knitting this pattern.
In terms of yarn, you could go more or less anywhere for this pattern. It will look equally good in a merino or standard 75/25 sock blend as it would in luxurious silk, cashmere or alpaca blends. The pattern is shown off to best effect in a semi-solid or solid, however, you could plump for a wild variegated yarn and still get some of the lightly textured stitch pattern whilst enjoying the effect this produces on the patterning of the yarn.
