Shape is the next important consideration. Do you need a cowl that will sit close to you neck for extra warmth? Or do you prefer a versatile long cowl that can be worn full length or doubled up for a different look? Maybe you love the look of a flowing style that covers your neck but also sits dramatically on your shoulders. Enjoy all the stages -- pursuing the project, the actual knit and of course the compliments you'll receive when finished!
