Ribbed cables wind around this fun striped cowl, which knits up quickly in chunky yarn. Named because Johnny from New Stitch a Day (my video collaborator) lives 3,000 miles away, so this cowl is well-traveled! Of course, it would also make a perfect accessory for skiing, either downhill or cross-country. This warm, chunky cowl is worked flat and grafted together to form a circle.
