If you’re looking for something to keep your neck warm and don’t want to wear a long scarf, why not try a cowl. It’s smaller than a scarf, so you can fold it up and store it in your bag. It’s more fitted around the neck and shoulders, so it keeps you warm more effectively than a scarf. Plus, you only need a skein or two of yarn to make one, so it’s quicker, cheaper and easier to make.

So, if you’re tempted to make your own cowl,  here are some of my favorites:
