This simple, yet striking cowl pattern uses slipped stitches to create a stitch pattern resembling bricks. It’s knit in the round, and is written for two lengths.

The scarf is worked in the round, starting with a provisional cast on; at the halfway point, the pattern colors are reversed and the second half is worked. The provisional cast on is removed and joined together with the live stitches using a three needle
bind off to create a reversible cowl.
