Inversion Cowl is a 100% reversible cowl knitted in worsted weight and using only simple knit and purl stitches to create an intricate pattern of triangles. Wear it long for the last days of Summer, then loop it for extra warmth as the weather turns cold.

This pattern requires no special skills other than working in the round. The simple knit and purl texture means it would be a great knit for beginners, but the long repeat helps to hold the interest of those more experienced.

Buying options
The cowl is available for purchase separately, or as part of an eBook with the accompanying Inversion Gloves. Previous purchasers of either pattern will receive an automatic discount on the cost of the eBook, should they decide to buy it in future.

Finished dimensions

25 (50, 65)“ circumference, 6.5” width. Sample shown is size L, which can be looped 3 times around my girl neck.

A note on yarn substitutions

The yarn used for this sample is listed in the Ravelry database as “bulky”, however it is more of a worsted. Since gauge is not essential for this pattern, any worsted or aran weight yarn will do.
