This cowl is worked sideways in back loops only, forming vertical “ribs”. Stripes are created by working two rows of a color, then changing colors. Each color is worked in a different stitch, and so the stripes have varying widths.

The cowl is worked with a large hook for a loose gauge and drapey fabric. Precise gauge is not critical, as the pattern is easily adjusted. You can easily make a longer cowl by lengthening the number of stitches worked in the foundation row.
