DESCRIPTION

This is an accessory you can’t wear backwards! Palindrome Cowl is an infinity cowl with no beginning and no end. Worked in buttery aran-weight merino this cowl is the perfect quick-to-knit project you can finish in a weekend. Massive color blocks and two-row stripes make it a versatile, unisex accessory. Change the look by choosing three colors with as much or as little contrast between them as you like.

The cowl is worked in soothing garter stitch with built-in i-cord edges for a finished look. The cowl begins with a provisional cast-on; the two ends are grafted together with Kitchener stitch to form a perfectly invisible join.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. This pattern is so simple only written instructions are needed.
