Monochrome stripes of Birch and Pebble give texture to this exquisitely soft, slouchy cowl. Short row wedges shape the cowl’s folds. Slouch Cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up, using knit and purl. The pattern instructions are written only, and include an illustrated tutorial for German Short Rows.
