Choose two lusciously soft yarns and cast on for this lovely versatile garment. Stockinette stitch welts and garter stitch short rows are worked seamlessly from the top neck edge. There is only one purl round after each welt so the rest of the rounds and rows utilize quick and easy knit stitches. Every short row turn is accentuated by a yarn over to shape the expanding fabric. Wear it draped over one shoulder or slouchy style as a cowl.
