Looking for a single skein project? Purl Soho’s latest free pattern – the Structured Alpaca Cowl is a winner on this, and so many other fronts! A cowl that sits well on the shoulders with just enough drape and not too much bulk. The structured style is very grown-up and sophisticated but, in different colours, would work equally well for kids.  The extended ribbing at the front is perfect for keeping that part of the neck warm where your coat zips to a “V”. Beautiful, practical, and versatile. Add it to your Christmas knitting list!
