The mathematical term for a donut shape is torus. Think of this fun cowl like a donut shell.

This one-cake project brings the stripes without the yarn changes or surplus ends to sew in. If you want a bigger cowl, use one of our larger cakes and just keep knitting!

While the knitting is simple as can be, you need to work a provisional cast on and Kitchener stitch the ends together to form the donut.
