Quiet River Cowl

You’re going to love how comfortable the Quiet River Cowl is! It’s light weight and will keep you nice and warm without all the bulk of most cowls.

The Quiet River Cowl can be made in a weekend (or less) and uses regular worsted/aran weight yarn so supplies can be inexpensive too.
