Knit a sampler of classic gansey textured stitch patterns with the Inshore Legwarmers (or Inshore Cowl). If you’ve never tried the tubular cast-on/bind-off, now is the time. It is the perfect compliment to this cozy accessory. Not quite ready for the challenge? Then stick with the tried-and-true long-tail cast-on.
