Construction: The Negative Space Chevron cowl uses 400 yards of worsted weight yarn to create a fabric that looks like it has chevron stripes. But instead of stripes, yarn overs create a chevron look with negative space. This cowl is generously sized to wrap close around your neck for snugly warmth, or you can just leave it draped or loosely wrapped for a casual, looser look.

Skill level: Intermediate
Skills needed: Casting on, binding off, knitting in the round, increasing with yarn overs, decreasing by k2tog and ssk.
