This adorable cowl will make a delightful addition to your winter ensemble. The stripes add lots of interest to a wool pea coat, and the garter stitch is so soft and cuddly, you just might not want to take it off, even when you duck into a cafe to warm up. It’s a perfect piece for a casual evening with a very special someone. The stripes are worked from opposite ends of a ball of gradient yarn, such that the contrast between the two colors becomes softer as you work from bottom to top. It’s a fast, relaxing, interesting knit and will appeal to process and product knitters alike.
