I’m so addicted to paracord, I want to use it on everything! This cowl is worked from the top down, double knit to create a closed tube then joined to work in the round for the slip stitch pattern. The end is an i-cord bind off and the paracord is pushed through the tube at the top to be tightned at the neck. My Mom helped me pick out the colors, she may not knit but she’s getting the hang of technical things! It will definitely keep your neck warm!
