Elongated stitches worked into rhythmically varied bands of garter stitch: a technique that’s perfect for showing off a beautiful yarn and for soothing, but never boring, knitting. The cowl is cast on lengthwise and worked in rows to the desired width, then it’s turned on its side and a second section is worked perpendicularly to give more length and to use up every last inch of precious Madelinetosh. A little bit of Kitchener stitch joins it all together in a luscious, multi-directional loop.
