Tetra Cowl is knit in the round in an easy 2-coloured stitch pattern which uses only 1 colour per round. Stranded colourwork technique is not required, the motives are created by knitting below. Knit it as given in the pattern for a long loop which can be worn loose or wrapped twice around your neck, or cast on fewer stitches for a single loop, the pattern is very easy to modify.
