Pebbles - 2 Color Texture Cowl

Free Support

Written and Charted pattern using American English knitting terms and abbreviations - glossary provided.

Very versatile style.

Fun to work ‘row below’ technique is simple to learn and memorize.

2 stitch/4 row repeats make a lovely checked ‘waffle’ texture that holds warmth yet breathes well.

Knit in the round with two colors (single hank each) of chunky yarn it works up fast.

Into/Exit rounds of Garter prevent curling.
