Tartan Thatch Cowl
A soft pliable Basket Weave stitch cowl, using super soft tweed yarn. This pattern is worked on circular needles, which creates a 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 these simpler options, the cowl must be joined with a seam.
