TFAS DIY: How To Knit A Cowl Scarf

Cowl Scarf

Hey everyone! I wanted to take the time to show how to knit a cowl scarf because it is a quick holiday gift that can be made in under 2-4 hours by beginning knitters to advanced knitters. This is a really easy pattern that I came up with. Plus it is a great pattern for those who want to learn how to use circular knitting needles.Sorry for the shoddy cellphone pics.
