Fairisle Anything Cowl

I used this free pattern, called Fairisle Anything Cowl on Ravelry.  There is no gauge listed in the pattern but I used 4 mm needles and a worsted/aran weight yarn and my gauge was 7 sts/inch.  

It fits perfectly under my coat as a neckwarmer.  

 The grey I used is leftover Graphite Tanis Fiber Arts Yarn Green Label Aran weight.  The self striping yarn is a Noro Silk Garden leftover from a vest I made my daughter.

Perfect for a Canadian winter.  My mom likes it so much that she's asked me for one . . . and she hardly ever wears anything handknit. Have you knit anything warm recently?
