The Duquesne Incline is an iconic sight in Pittsburgh, its red cars gently scaling the side of Mount Washington as they take riders to the observation deck at the top for a breathtaking view of downtown.

This double-knit cowl is fully reversible, giving you options for how to wear the cowl, and the double thickness of the fabric provides extra warmth.

To knit this pattern, you need to know how to:

  • knit and purl when working in the round,
  • read and work from a double-knit colorwork chart, and
  • do a long-tail cast on.

A photo tutorial for the alternating two-color cast on recommended in the pattern is included, as are some additional resources for double-knitting.
