Versatility is at the heart of this cowl. It’s reversible, unisex, and looks just as great in a shiny silk blend as it does in a rustic tweed. The slipped stitches give a pleasing squishiness to the fabric, while the seed stitch squares offer great textured detail. Worked in the round with worsted weight yarn, the repetitive pattern makes for a quick and easy knit. Just follow the path and enjoy - they don’t get better than this!
