Though this cowl/turtle was designed for a golfer, it works as well for those who never hit the links. I designed it so that when my husband (GolfPro) suddenly finds that the wind has picked up, and he’s chilly enough to wish he’d put on a turtleneck before hitting the links, he could solve the problem with something small enough to keep in his golf bag. This will keep his neck warm without getting in the way (as a scarf would do), and without looking too feminine. Your favorite vocalist will find it as helpful.
Knit in cotton or a wool-cotton blend, it’s light enough to wear indoors, but worked in a nice wool or alpaca blend, it will keep you toasty on bright winter walks through the snow.
The original was knit using 180 yards of Fortissima Cotton, but any fingering weight yarn will do.
The cowl is worked top down, with a bit of extra ribbing on the "corners" to help keep the cotton snug against the wearer's neck, even after being stretched out to go over his head.
This diamond brocade stitch pattern helps trap warm air inside.
