Westport Cowl: a cowl recipe and tutorial in jogless ridges and welts
We all love cowls. They’re quick to make as gifts, small enough to justify the use of precious fibres or hand-spun yarns, and they can double as hoods if made long enough. In my quest for the perfect, simple cowl, I ran across a lot of patterns with ridges and welts, but there was always one small detail missing—how to avoid the inevitable jog where the rounds meet up. This pattern, based on Barbara Walker’s Quaker Ridges stitch, from her first Treasury, offers an easy solution to that problem.
