Whitecaps crest each breaking wave

This quick one-skein project is perfect for that orphan skein of worsted hanging out in your stash. Whether it was an impulse purchase or a leftover from a larger project, that beautiful, soft skein has a destiny!

Whitecaps is a close-fitting cowl that tapers slightly from neck to shoulder. Worked in the round, this deceptively simple pattern combines elongated stiches with a basic cable to break up color repeats and striping.
