The knitting is easy, although almost all the techniques may be new to most knitters. This is a super cozy, oversized cowl that will shelter you from the fiercest of storms. The double garter stitch pattern is worked on every one of its 52 rows. The two selvage ends are joined together in an intriguing and attractive double bind-off similar to three-needle bind-off.

This knitting pattern includes written directions, a photo tutorial for the double bind off, and links to video tutorials for unusual techniques.
