Stripe & Basket Cowl


Stripe & Basket cowl combines two different stitch techniques in one pattern: striping and basketweave. The cowl is knit flat like a scarf and ends are seamed together using the three needle bind-off technique to create an infinity style cowl. It’s easy to knit, but the striping and basketweave stitch patterns keeps it interesting too. A fun way to play around with color and texture. And since it uses bulky-weight yarn, it’s a fast knit too!
