PATTERN NOTES Bold lines, vibrant colors, and a touch of cashmere make this cowl an irresistible project. Worked seamlessly in the round, this cowl features a seed stitch border and combines stripes and applied crochet lines to create a plaid effect.
The purl columns in the Plaid Pattern serve two purposes: they form “reminder” lines for where the slip-stitch crochet chains go. They also allow the slip-stitch chains to “nest,” blending almost seamlessly into the rest of the fabric.
When working in Plaid Pattern, there is no need to cut contrast colors – instead, carry yarn through the inside of the work.
