So cashmere is great for knitting cowls, being so warm and bulky, you can complete a cowl in one evening with 8 mm needles. To knit a So cashmere cowl, you need to know how to cast on, bind off, knit and purl, but nothing more.
You will need one ball and a half of So cashmere and a button. Choose a wooden button to make the cowl look more rough or a bright one for your sunny side, or a shiny one on a black cowl if you want to sparkle. If you want a longer cowl, just keep on knitting, with 4 or 5 balls you shall have a long, thick cowl to protect your nose and mouth against the chill.
