The Geometer cowl begins with a provisional cast-on and is knitted as a tube until the desired length is reached. After that, one end of the cowl is twisted and the last round is grafted to the provisional cast-on using Kitchener stitch. The colourwork is both charted and written out and the size of the cowl is easily adjusted by working more or fewer repeats. Keep in mind that yardage requirements change when altering the size. The two CC yarns are held together throughout the project.
