This reversible chevron cowl is knit as two separate pieces that are seamed together down the sides and then sewn into a loop. One side is a chevron design reminiscent of mountain peaks and the other side is a simple solid colour. The chevron design is done using the stranded colour-work method. I hope you enjoy this pattern!
