The first design in my series inspired by container ships and ship breaking, this cowl is named for the stacks of containers in the working shipyard of Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, which I drive past on my trips from Boston to the Washington, DC, area.

Port Elizabeth is worked in one piece as three tiers. The first tier of squares is knit flat and then seamed to make a loop. The stitches for the next tiers of squares are picked up from the edge of this loop, and the tiers are joined to these live stitches as they are knit.
