The first time I featured ninaknits I focused on her hats; for this revisit, we'll look at some of her great, quick knits that are perfect for this time of year. Treat yourself to one of these beautiful cowls!

The Cantare Cowl has fantastic texture, something that you'll see throughout all of ninaknits' designs. This is a piece that you can experiment with. It's something of a stitch sampler, allowing you to see your chosen yarn in a variety of patterns.

Her Chesterfield Neckwarmer is a close-fitting cowl, with a great flipped edge created through short rows. Buttons running up the side ensure it'll keep all chills away.

And the Teardrop Cowl features beautiful beadwork and lace. It has a great, delicate use of picot edging.
