This cowl was originally designed for a class I taught at Indian Market in Santa Fe at a local yarn shop called Hacer. It is a smaller version of the Bluewater Wrap which was inspired by a lake that my family used to spend time at when I was young. The texture is created using knit and purl stitches. It is knit on the bias which is achieved by an increase on one side and a decrease on the other. The seamless look is made by using a Provisional Cast On which is then grafted together with the working stitches at the end.
Knit, Purl, Provisional cast on, working from charts (written instructions also provided), knit/purl through the back loop, grafting using Kitchener stitch.
