Long before I have started knitting, I already customized most of my shirts. T-shirt modders often use a technique called ‚weaving‘, where they shred parts of the shirt into stripes and ‚weave‘ them artfully back together. I borrowed this technique for this super chunky cowl design. (No need to shred anything here, though.) The outcome looks a little like knitted cables, but you can simply achieve this look by casting on and binding off knit and purl stitches.
Once you snuggled up in this cowl, you won‘t want to take it off again anytime soon. Promise!
