MY FAVORITE STORE-BOUGHT SCARF IS AN OVERSIZED FABRIC RECTANGLE that I like to wear in a giant knot around my neck. I wanted to replicate the bulky look of that scarf without having to crochet a rectangle. The cowl construction mirrors the shape of all that fabric, and the lofty stitches are quick to make.
