An easy-to-knit texture pattern creates puffs which make these cowls squeeze-ably soft and warm. Interlocking diamonds are created in wide stripes of color with a Tuck Stitch knit into the stitch several rounds below the needle while releasing the stitches above. A reverse-stockinette edge rolls to the wrong side for a nice finished edge.
Cowls in two lengths are worked in the round with only one color at a time. Use three colors for stripes as I have here, change it up by using only one or two colors or make it multi-colored by using up your scraps.
