Stripes and texture move this way and that, the exquisitely soft yarn flowing through the simple rhythms of the stitch patterns to make a striking, graphic cowl with two layers for extra warmth. Pattern includes instructions for a single and double loop cowl, as well as tips for further adjusting the depth and length of your cowl to suit your taste. Thataway is worked in the round and seamed; a garter stitch band hides the seam line. This design uses knit, purl, twisted yarn over increases, and ssk/k2tog decreases. The pattern instructions are written only.
