This pattern can be found in issue 7 of Laine Magazine.

The Talla cowl is knit using the mosaic knitting technique. The pattern uses a provisional cast on and grafting to create a seamless, reversible cowl. Gauge is not critical for this project. A tighter gauge will yield a denser fabric and smaller dimensions, looser gauge will yield a more relaxed fabric and larger dimensions.
