If there’s one piece that belongs in every wardrobe - especially a knitter’s - it’s the oversized cowl. Iconic in true red, Yeoh’s is knit flat in a sumptuously textured rickrack-ribbing pattern and joined with a unique three needle bind-off technique. Curled reverse stockinette stitch edging bordering the two edges looks like I-cord but is much easier to achieve. Erin, a soft, matte Columbia wool from Imperial Yarn, refines the look while offering light-weight warmth.
