Inside Outside Cowl
In 2 sizes, plus a bonus headband
With some very simple knitting—and a little fussy finishing—you’ll have a double layer cowl that’s totally seamless, utterly reversible, and very versatile. Designed for our 2012 LYS (Local Yarn Shop) tour, the two-color version can be worn either color out, or shifted half way for bold color blocking. (We’ve also included a bonus pattern for a totally tubular headband that you can knot, or not.)
