Short Description: These cowls might look like double crochet, but they’re actually knit! Two sizes and three gauges make it easy to work up lots of these cozy cowls with ease. The unusual stit ch pattern is adapted from Lynne Barr’s Reversible Knitting (STC, 2009), and definitely looks great on both sides. Use fingering, DK or worsted, or chunky weight yarn. Includes attached I-cord for tidy edges, and a Three-Needle Bind-Off to attach the ends.
