Have you ever wanted to wear those cute triangle shawls but couldn’t figure out exactly how to keep it on your neck without constant adjustment? This cowl takes care of that for you! Knit like a triangle shawl for most of the body and then joined in the round to form a cowl, there are no pesky tails to tuck or tie and it lies perfectly every time! The texture and color add interest and keep you from becoming bored with the knitting.

Thanks to love2spin, there is now an additional chart available for download that shows more pattern repeats and how those interact with the stripes!
