Have you ever been driving down the road and caught sight of perfect white vapor trails streaked across the sky? That’s just what inspired this cowl. Perfectly crisscrossed, the contrails I spotted were destined to be knit! Unlike the picture I took, these contrails won’t disappear before you can capture their image. You can even make a hat and mittens to match!

Learn something new with this pattern as you try the long tail tubular cast-on and tubular bind-off that top off the finishing on this cowl. Doesn’t sound like fun? You can substitute another cast on!
