This simple cowl is worked from the bottom up and features rhythmical stacks of textured motifs. Originally designed as a practice project for speed knitting, it’s also perfect for practicing basic knitting skills as the entire cowl is worked in knit and purl stitches only. Make a quick single-loop neckwarmer or an ultra-cozy double loop infinity scarf!
