Day 166 and Breathe
I love cowls. They're comfortable. They don't catch on things. They stay put because they have nowhere else to go. They're a nice easy rectangle. One reason one might dislike cowls however is that if you get hot, there's nothing you can do about it except remove the whole thing! With a scarf you could let it hang around your shoulders and get the warmth around the back of your neck and shoulders but not your chest. A cowl doesn't let you do something like that.
Easy solution. Lace. Make some holes in your cowl and the crisp breeze will flow right through. You'll be warm and breathing at the same time.
I used a heavily variegated yarn here, so the design isn't very clear, but if your lace is strictly for comfort then that doesn't make much of a difference. It could be as simple as putting yarn over/knit two together combos randomly or evenly spaced in your fabric.
