Check Yourself is a great pattern for an adventurous beginner or intermediate knitter who would like to learn a few new tricks. Advanced knitters will find this simple project satisfies that urge to play with color. This cowl utilizes a provisional cast on, a folded hem, and a straightforward grid like chart for stranded knitting in which you work with no more than two strands at one time and never have to wrap or tuck floats.
