This close fitting, scrunchy, reversible cowl is knit in Yarn Indulgences Indulgent DK weight yarn. Stockinette and reverse stockinette stitches are used to show off this gorgeous Garnet colourway. Abacus can also be knit with garter stitch borders (instructions included). You may customize circumference by casting on more or fewer stitches and customize length by knitting more or fewer rounds. My cozy cowl is knit with one skein of Indulgent DK. Enjoy!
