This versatile, unisex hooded cowl works up quickly in a super bulky, self-striping yarn that does the colorwork for you. The simple, textured stitch pattern is perfect for beginners, or for more advanced knitters looking for a project to work on while distracted. The pattern includes instructions for working seamlessly in the round or knitting flat and then seaming. This is pattern 11 in the Finishing Touches Knit Along.
