New “Tech” (Techniques) Cowl is a great stashbuster. The knitter starts with one block and then the rest of the cowl is built along the circumference from that first block until the last block connects the cowl into a circle. After that, the edges are picked up and knit and voila, there’s a cowl with no sewing to be done, just ends to weave in.

Pattern is 8 pages.
