This cowl was inspired by the varying shades and textures of lichens. Knit simply in the round with added texture of purl rows and color changes, this cowl can be worn with the “right” and “wrong” side out. One side offers the purl bump texture, while the other displays alternating stripes. The cowl can also be worn draped around the neck and shoulders, or looped twice for a snug warmer fit around the neck.

For a great effect, use more than 2 colors in the stripes!
