It’s impressive the designs one can get with relatively simple patterns of knit and purl. In this case, I alternated which direction chevrons point—up or down—and tiled them all around for additional effect. The cowl may be worn as a long loop, or doubled for additional snuggliness.

This cowl is a companion to another that I also designed in Anzula’s For Better or Worsted, Here and There and Everywhere.
