The halo of Amphora combined with the sequined sparkle of Cotton Gold makes for a thing of beauty in the Glisten Cowl. One strand of each of these very different yarns is held together throughout the work.

The front part of the cowl is an intriguing cable and lace pattern, while the back is simple garter stitch. The garter section allows your mind to rest before diving back into the patterned section. The difference between the two sections is also visually pleasing allowing the intricate cables to shine more brightly.

The Glisten cowl is worked circularly from the bottom up beginning with a crochet provisional cast on. The top edge is finished with an I-cord bind off. Finally, the provisional cast-on is unpicked and the stitches are bound off using the I-cord method.
