This pattern was originally published as part of the Twisted Cowl Club in November 2012. Latest version published September 2020.

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 much better than this!

Circumference: 21”/53 cm
Height: 8”/20 cm
Measured after blocking

This cowl is knit in the round from the bottom up. For a larger circumference cowl, increase the number of cast-on stitches by 12 for each additional pattern repeat. You will need roughly 20 extra yards of yarn per additional repeat.

16 sts = 4”/10 cm in stockinette stitch after blocking. Gauge is not crucial for this pattern but it will affect finished measurements and yarn usage.
