This fun, little knit is a compromise between a cowl and a shawl. The Shortcut cowl was designed for knitters who love the look of a shawl, but only have the time and yardage for a cowl. Worked SEAMLESSLY from the top down, it knits up quickly (like any good cowl should), but wears like a hassle-free shawl. Specifically designed for color play, this pattern has lots of texture, so you can knit it using a rainbow of colors OR a single happy skein of yarn. Stash buster bonus: this cowl gives knitters the chance to dive into their stash and discover the fun little bits and bobs leftover from other projects.
