Slouch Cowl

Monochrome stripes in different yarns give texture to this exquisitely soft, slouchy cowl. Short row wedges shape the cowl’s folds. The shorter size is a lovely, light cowl for crisp days, while the deeper size shown here gives more coverage, and can also be worn wrapped around the neck and pinned. Slouch Cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up, using knit and purl. The pattern includes an illustrated tutorial for German Short Rows.
