Rib Twist Cowl
A soft pliable ribbed cowl, using contrasting textured yarns. This pattern is worked on circular needles, which creates the permanent twisted effect without any seam. It is also possible to create this item without using circular needles, or using circular needles working back and forth on the needles rather than working “in the round”. In this option, the cowl must be joined with a seam.
