This cowl is simple, but full of texture. It is the sister cowl to my Alternating HexiCowl. I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so I made both! While I knit mine with a full ball of Rowan Pure Wool Worsted, you could also go stash diving. This cowl is perfect for using up the 125-150 yards leftover balls in your stash; and it looks stylish too!
I like my cowls to be a little bigger so that I can keep my hair tidy and tuck the cowl around my neck when worn with my coat or sweater. If that’s not your style, you can easily remove a repeat or two. It is also a fast knit with an easy repeat to memorize. Perfect for stashbusting AND gift giving.
This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
