This reversible cowl can be worn with any of its sides facing out. And also, if you pull the cord and tie the upper edge, you can wear it as a hat. So it’s actually four accessories in one.
It was also designed to show off your favorite variegated yarn on one side (worked in straight stockinette stitch). The other side is worked in a solid colored yarn, to show off your knitting abilities. :-)
Finished size: 20 ¾ inches (52 cm) around; 8.5 inches (21.5 cm) long
You can use any aran weight yarn for this cowl. You will need about 130 yd of each color. For the mock cable section, is better to use a slightly lighter yarn.

Crochet hook for provisional cast-on.
Waste yarn for provisional cast on.
Additional needle to work a 3-needle-bind-off.
