Graphic colorwork and a sprinkling of cables adorn this cozy winter cowl. At a glance, the stranded pattern looks like stars. Look again, and you may be reminded of mosaic tile, lattice, or flowers.

This cowl begins with a provisional cast-on, is knit in the round, and the ends are grafted together to form a seamless tube. This makes for a neck accessory that is effortless to wear, as there is no wrong side. The long version (shown) can be doubled up when the icy wind kicks in.
