There’s something magically simple about purl ridges. By throwing a few ridges here and there you get this wonderfully textured knitting using only the most simple of stitches. Worked in the round, this cowl uses a five color mini skein pack in our sport weight, Mad Hatter. Alternately, use a full size (4 oz) skein of sport for a single color version that’s a bit shorter than the cowl shown.
