In my quest for the perfect, simple cowl, I ran across a lot of patterns with ridges and welts, but there was always one small detail missing—how to avoid the inevitable jog where the rounds meet up. This pattern, based on Barbara Walker’s Quaker Ridges stitch, from her first Treasury, offers an easy solution to that problem.
FYI, I used the Loft and Kidsilk Haze held together.
