An intriguing construction; a real mystery knitalong is revealed.
How about a cowl with no casting on & no binding off? It’s made in rows but ends up all in one piece. There’s no knitting in the round, no sewing, no grafting, no provisional cast-on, no picking up stitches.
You can make it to your own custom size, in your own choice of yarn without having to make a tension square. No kidding. It’s garter stitch - with funky stripes and some easy intermediate increasing & decreasing.
Two versions of the pattern are included. The “Free Spirits” option is to knit from any yarn - guidance is given on cowl sizes and yarn quantities. Go bust that stash!
BUT I know not every knitter wants to decide everything, right? So, there is a fully designed “Inspiration Stripe” option in two sizes - you just follow the “clues” with the suggested yarn.
