Basket weave cowl
When I had published the [(snowflake) basket weave beanie] I had already promised to publish the matching cowl soon.
It's a super-easy stranded pattern, because it has only two colors throughout the whole project and the strands are so short due to the basket weave pattern, that you do not have to cross any strands over the working yarn.
The herringbone edges at the top and the bottom are added as extra eye-catchers.
The cowl starts with a two-color cast-on which is also described in the pattern in a picture tutorial.
I got the idea from a basket standing in our bathroom... and it didn't get out of my head anymore until it was done :)
It's completeley knitted in 4-ply sock yarn and you need about 35 g of each color.
It will also look great in other color choices. Like black and white, or dark red and white, white and dark green...
But you can also use Acrylic yarn of similar weight.
Enjoy and happy knitting!
