Bas Relief Cowl
The slipped cable stitches in this cowl form a tessellated design of pointed ovals which smartly nestle together. The stitch pattern is relatively simple and easy to follow, and the cowl is a great stepping stone on the way to the matching hat or mitts. Choose a smooth, solid-colored yarn to highlight the raised stitch pattern.
Make the Bas Relief Mitts and Bas Relief Hat for a full set.
