Beach Peas Cowl
Beach Peas Cowl pattern is designed as a part of a set with a matching hat. Stitch patterns used in this design make it perfect for a reversible accessory like this cowl. The main part of the cowl is worked flat, then the ends of a knitted piece are grafted together for a seamless look. Finally, the trims are knitted on in the round from picked up stitches. The different number of picked up stitches at the top and bottom of the cowl creates an A-line shape for a comfortable fit.
