We love stripes—big stripes, little stripes and everything in between. So when Alicia Vause created a pair of fingerless gloves that had all of the above, in stripes that zipped from 5 rounds to 4 to 3 to 2 to 1 — we jumped on board. Then we just had to share the fun with our necks, revving our stripes from 18 rounds to 3 in a super-soft cowl that’s seamless in both directions. Snap!

Errata. In patterns dated before January 6, 2015, there were errors in the cast-on for the cowl. The provisional cast-on should be in waste yarn, not CC. Also, the first stripe sequence should begin with 18 rounds CC, not 17 rounds. More details on our errata page.
