This cowl is deceptively simple. Sure, casting on and binding off both take for ever, but it’s a fun project, utilizing Cat Bordhi’s truly magical moebius cast on and my very favorite I cord bind off and a whole bunch of easy, beautiful knitting in between. In the Schoppel Wolle yarns, it looks like something out of this world.
