PATTERN NOTES This cowl is knit as a tube in the round. It begins with a provisional cast-on, which is unraveled during finishing and each end of the tube is grafted together to create a seamless cowl. You may wish to place markers between each repeat of the Florals pattern to help you stay on track. If you do, we recommend using a unique stitch marker to denote the beginning of each round.
