This men's cowl came about as an idea from my father. He owns a bait shop and was wanting a few cowl type scarves to have in his shop for the ice fishermen in the winter, the request was for something simple with some stretch to ensure a fitted and warm neck warmer. He was pleased with the outcome and we decided to make a less bulky version also so I've included both the worsted weight and bulky weight versions for you.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
