This cowl is made all in one piece but worked back-and-forth in rows. There’s no sewing or grafting. It even includes the mobius twist so that it sits nicely. Wondering how? Trust me.
You can make the cowl in any gauge - it’s a fabulous stash buster. Make it as stripy as you like, using up odds and ends or special mini-skeins. A yarn with long color changes will make the stripes for you - ideal for faster gift knits. A worksheet makes designing your own straightforward.
Also, there are worksheets to work this as a regular pattern with various yarn quantities, gauge and stripe details.
Play around with how you wear it - show off the zig zag or arrange it in symmetrical stripes, choose just the right side or mix the wrong-side stripes. Twist it double and play with it some more.
This is an interesting knit for an intermediate knitter. Once you’ve got it going, it’s easy to work. Looking for less of a challenge? Try the simpler Trust Me, which has the option to omit the provisional cast on.
