Select four skeins of DK weight yarn and knit the fascinating Dip Stitch pattern. Increases and decreases shape the cowl as you knit in the round to form a tapered shape that curves around your head. This cowl is knit in the round, resulting in a double thick warm layer of wool. Use a gradient of yarn and arrange your colors from light to dark or dive into your stash to knit a multi-color stashbusting version with all your DK weight yarns.
