Cowl made out of 10 pointed pieces knitted in garter stitch and joined together while working. There are little eyelets along the edge and tassles at the end of each point. The length allows the cowl to be draped around your neck 2 or 3 times. The composition shows best when using two different colour yarns.

You need less than three 50 gram balls of dk wool in each of the colours.

The patterns includes several close-up photos of the stages, written instructions and a cut-out template with important points marked to follow the shaping of the piece as you work.

You could of course make a shorter cowl by using 8 or 6 pieces instead of the 10.
