The Chai Latte Cowl is a perfect take-along project, and with only a two-row repeat, it is easy to knit while carrying on a conversation. The cowl begins with a 2× 1 ribbing, transitioning into a Broken Rib pattern. As you work the cowl, a faux cable created by yarnovers and decreases creates a Stockinette section that widens as the Broken Rib pattern decreases, highlighting the contrast of the two stitch patterns, with the top border worked in a complementary 2×1 ribbing.

-Two stitch markers are used in the pattern to easily identify where to decrease. Before working the decrease, the stitch marker will be moved one stitch to the right or left on every other row. As you work the cowl, you might find it easy to see where the decreases occur and may want to remove these markers.
