This cosy cowl is a simple, extra-quick knit in one skein of super chunky yarn. Diagonal sections of seed stitch and ribbing are separated with a border of twisted stitches. Ideal for a really hefty yarn – try it out in bulky hand-spun too! Gaderian means ‘to bring together’ in Old English, and refers to the way the twisted stitches meet to make a point.
