March 2012: This pattern has been re-sampled and re-invented. Please check out New Bittersweet Cowl!
Some people have commented that adding some rows of garter stitch to the cowl would be good to prevent rolling at the edges. That’s wise advice, but I confess I like the way the zig zag eyelet pattern form a slightly scalloped edge. But are scallops worth the rolling? I leave it up to you.
For a garter stitch edge, start with 1 row K, 1 row P, 1 row K, 1 row P. End with 1 row P, 1 row K, 1 row P, 1 row K.
