This casual yet elegant cowl features a repeating checkerboard pattern… but with an interesting twist. Surprise! There are eyelets hidden in every other square.

The cowl is knit in the round on circular needles to eliminate seaming at the end. The design is reversible and looks equally good on both sides.

The measurement of the finished piece is approximately 27” x 8”.

The colorway used for the cowl in the photo is Willow Leaf from Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. One skein of Cotton Fleece (215 yards) was used to make this cowl.
