Skye was looking for a simple neck gaiter pattern that she could knit to wear while riding her bike on chilly days. One of Kristen's Free Patterns from her blog (Marinade), the Donner Pass Cowl, fit the bill perfectly so she cast on in Malabrigo Worsted Merino. She loved the pattern because it's simple knitting that is still interesting with it's spiral rib pattern. She finished knitting it over a weekend trip with friends and they all begged her to knit them one too. It's perfectly cozy for cold days like today!
