We noticed that some knitters were knitting the cowl from another or our patterns separately and that gave us an idea. Why not double the cowl’s circumference for an infinity loop that you can wear long and elegant, or twist double for twice the cozy? We added purl welts for a sculptural effect. And, while we were at it, we two-toned if for clever reversibility!
