I wondered how many helices I could set up at once? The answer was way more than I thought! This cowl is the result of that “what if?” whimsy.

Pattern Notes
The cowl starts with a waste yarn cast on, before being joined into the round. The main colour is joined in and knited before a 14-round rainbow of helical stripes are set up, then changing to Storm to complete the cowl. The waste yarn is removed from the cast-on edge and the stitches are grafted together.
