Chunky cowls stand up well against a cold wind. This one has a striking pinwheel design that is worked with just knits, purls, and simple twisted stitches. Choose a yarn like the one shown here with excellent stitch definition and a vibrant color.
Worked in one piece from the bottom up on a large circular needle, this is a quick, seamless knit that makes for an awesome weekend project!
A great gift for the males and females on your list too. Looks fabulous folded in like a turtleneck or just scrunched down.
