Thank you so much to my wonderful test knitters - you are all amazing!!

This cowl was designed to showcase any yarn that you have been saving for a special occasion. Solid or variegated; plied or single; handspun or hand-dyed…the only requirement for the yarn is that it should be something soft against your skin!

Since the entire project is knit, it makes great zen knitting. It is the perfect creation to work on between more challenging

The cowl is knit from the bottom-up on circular needles. A provisional cast on is used and to finish, live stitches from each end are grafted together to create a seamless tube.
