Notions: Stitch marker

Notes: Worked in the round using two worsted weight yarns, this densely-knit cowl is designed to fit loosely yet close to the neck. The zigzag pattern is created by combining stitches worked with both colours held together and stitches using only one colour whilst the other is held in back. The longest float at the back of the
cowl spans five stitches. Catching the floats is unnecessary in this situation and might interfere with the clarity of the colour on the front, but if you feel it necessary then be sure to vary where you catch them with each successive round.
