Knit in round. 1 Hour Knit Herringbone Cowl - Free Knitting Pattern that takes 1 skein and 1 hour, so easy!I'm skeptical about the one hour part, Maybe for power knitters. But, it is still a great design even if it takes some of us longer to knit;
Simple stockinette cowl knit in the round. With hidden decreases, the cowl narrows towards the top to create a snug fit by the neck for extra coziness. It is long& enough to be worn as a snood (though again - it will be nicely snug).
