The Diamond cowl was first featured in Knit Now Magazine, Issue 99, February 2019.

The cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up, starting with a twisted rib hem. The twisted ribbing flows into parallel lines of twisted stitches that frame diamonds of stockinette, and the cowl is finished with a twisted rib hem at the top.

The diamond motif section can be worked from chart or written instructions.
