Grab a skein of your favourite heavy Aran or a Chunky weight yarn and circular needles to make this cosy cowl.
Beautiful in its simplicity, the pattern plays on the natural slant of the diagonal stocking stitch worked next to a panel of garter to give you this elegant and fun to knit accessory.

The cowl is worked in the round using a circular or a set of double pointed needles. The pattern will naturally slant as your work progresses giving the cowl a wave at the cast on and the bind off edge.
