  • This cowl is worked back and forth from end to end. Its provisional cast-on is grafted to the cowl’s ending stitches to form a seamless tube. Keep the cast-on stitches on the waste-yarn chain until all stitches have been grafted.
  • When counting stitches, count each slipped stitch with its companion yarn-over as one stitch. When counting rows, each visible row counts as two rows worked of Brioche stitch.
