Carinthia Cowl

Carinthia, found in the Austrian Alps, is a place of majestic mountains and lakes. In winter, swirling snow dances across frozen landscapes. This colorful cowl, with its doubled-thickness, is just the thing to keep the chill at bay. Worked in one piece from a provisional cast-on, this fun, two color cowl knits up quickly, and, with the worsted weight yarn and lined interior, would make an excellent choice for a first Fair Isle project.
