Much like the Alpen Ear Warmer, the Alpen Cowl is easy and quick to make using bulky yarn. The super soft Red Heart Hygge gives it so much snuggle potential too!
The pattern is worked in the round and easily adjusted to make larger or smaller.
Using different textures of yarn gives each one a unique look, and really brings out the stitch definition too.
The Tester Pictures
So, when we were doing the Test for the Alpen Ear Warmer we got to talking about how great a cowl would be with a similar stitch pattern… So I tried it and here we are! My testers were amazing as usual!
Some yarns they used are: Premier Puzzle, Lionbrand Hue + Me, Patons Shetland Chunky, and Barcelona Big.
