Two Tone Moss Cowl
A soft pliable Moss stitch cowl, using two contrasting soft tweed yarns. 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.
