BEDFORD COWL

The Bedford Cowl will keep you cozy this season with the perfect combination of cushy garter stitch and twisting cables. The body of the cowl is knit flat and joined using the three needle bind off method. The raw edge is then picked up and knit to create a folded ribbed edge and a wonderfully finished piece. The width of the Bedford Cowl is easily customizable and the pattern is written with personal adjustments in mind.
