Select 3 skeins of DK weight yarn and enjoy the simple textures of the basketweave knit/purl stitch pattern. The cowl is knit in the round and then seamed together for a cozy warm cocoon. The reversible fabric is shaped with increases and decreases to form a hooded effect. This pattern works well with DK or worsted weight yarn to keep you warm and protected from the winter chills.
