Continue these four rounds until cowl reaches desired width. I did about 5 inches.
Change back to first yarn, Knit 1 round
Work in K2, P2 rib for 5 rounds, Bind off.
This is a super easy pattern that goes very quickly once you get into a rythym. It results in a loose fitting cowl that slips over the head, with a cool, nubby texture. Enjoy!
*Disclaimers, etc: This pattern (not the stitch pattern) was made up on the fly as I was trying to use up some extra wool yarn from another project. Any similarity to previously existing patterns is coincidental. Thanks!*
