“The knitting is a walk in the park.”

This subtle diagonal stitch pattern is akin to K2/P2 ribbing, but the rhythm ‘walks’ over by one stitch every other row (or round) for a subtle, reversible texture that’s easier than it looks. The handsome muffler has tailored slip-stitch selvedges. The cowl is worked on larger needles for a softer drape. Both cowl and muffler have instructions for two gauges of yarn (DK and heavy worsted weight).
