Julie’s Turnagain cowl is a masterful study of color and pattern – featuring a double-sided fabric composed of two distinctly different (and equally appealing) striping patterns. This versatile piece allows for several styling options: display the bold, color-block-style of the first side or the rhythmic, narrow stripes of the other. Shift the position of the fold line and you can display a combination of both sides while wearing. With four different colorways included, and endless options for your own color creativity, here is a great opportunity for a truly one-of-a-kind accessory.


CONSTRUCTION
Cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up, beginning with a provisional cast-on; upon completion of knitting you will graft the final row of the pattern together with the provisional cast-on row to close the cowl.
