This generously sized cowl is knit flat and joined together with a pronounced visible ridge, so you can customize the cowl to be as long as you desire. It looks great wrapped around your neck twice for ultimate warmth or worn full length in a relaxed loop.
Lovely cables in a simple ribbing, paired with an alternating lace motif that plays off the proportions of the ribs, creating different size and texture bubbles. Make a game of it with your needles, it is so bubbly that you will like it!
This cowl is worked flat in one piece and then joined into a loop. It begins with a Provisional Cast On and is worked as a scarf until it reaches sufficient length. After knitting, provisional stitches are joined with live stitches using a Three-needle I-cord Join to produce a visible ridge with no seaming.
