Inspired by stacks of chopped wood, Woodstack pairs bands of stockinette with strips of simple lace. This cozy cowl is created by holding together two strands of your favourite fingering weight yarn. Once knit, the cowl is heavily blocked to produce a light and airy fabric that warmly drapes around your neck. There are instructions for both a single loop cowl and an infinity cowl. They are knit in the round.
