This handsome cowl or scarf uses a “magical” stitch to create vertical stripes on one side, horizontal stripes on the other. Amaze your friends!
It’s perfect for team or school colors, and makes a great gift.

Graft the ends together for a cowl, or knit it as a scarf.

This “magical” stitch requires a circular needle.
